Learn to Keep Bees

Interested in keeping bees but not sure where to start?  We offer a short course in February to teach you the basics.  We have monthly meetings on a variety of beekeeping topics.  You do not need to be a member to attend a meeting.  Meetings are held at Brookside Nature Center or Holiday Park Senior Center.  Check the calendar for meeting’s location and speaker.

Take My Bees!

We can help with unwanted bees in your home or on your property. A bee swarm is a large group of bees looking for a new home. Beekeepers will be happy to provide that home.
