Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
We are here for the purpose of educating people about beekeeping, supporting beekeepers, and to provide bee-related services to the greater Kalamazoo area community. The Kalamazoo Bee Club is an open club—anyone can be a member and no membership fee or dues are collected. We provide education through monthly programs (generally in the form of an educational presentation), field-days during the non-winter months at the club apiary, and our annual Bee School.
Club Field Day: Sunday, August 21 @ 1:00
THIS SUNDAY, August 21 at 1:00, there will be a field day at the Kalamazoo Bee Club’s apiary (weather permitting) at the Colony Farm Orchard on Drake Road. This is a great way to get some hands-on experience with the club hives and also a wonderful opportunity to get your questions answered! We will be doing sugar roll tests on the hive to monitor mite loads. We will also be harvesting honey as well, and deciding on what mite treatments we will be needing.
Open to the public! Information and directions can be found on the Field Days page!
August Club Meeting: Wednesday, September 14 @6:30
Mike Risk the President of the Center of Michigan Beekeepers will be speaking about Summer Management for Nectar and Pollen Dearth & Integrated Pest Management. Check out the Club Meeting page for details and directions!
