Kalamazoo Bee Club Apiary
The Kalamazoo Bee Club has operated a Club apiary at several different locations over the years for the purpose of hands-one education. Currently (2018) the Club apiary is located at WMU Business & Technology Park and also the home of WMU Student Apiary. The WMU BTR park is located at the corner of Drake and Parkview in Kalamazoo. See map below.
The Kalamazoo Bee Club started an apiary in the spring of 2010 to educate young beekeepers ages 5 – 15 and assist beginning beekeepers of all ages with hands-on experiences in the hives. The club apiary is owned by the Kalamazoo Bee Club and is available for all members to use, adults as well as young people. The Kalamazoo Bee Club apiary is used to teach beekeeping skills and to try out different beekeeping techniques.
