New Projects for 2019

DCA

Learning about genetics of our local bees means research, including the local Drone Congregation Areas, or DCA. Dennis Ragosa is looking for volunteers to help start this fascinating theory on the genetics of local bees. Stay tuned!

Workshops

We are planning our first make and take workshop! Members will be able to register to join the fellowship as we create items together and bring them home. There are several ideas in the works, so come to the next meeting to learn more! 

Volunteers Needed!

Apiary/Garden

With our new location at Amis Mill, yard work has been cut down quite a bit! We have been granted permission to plant an acre of wildflower seeds on the property, which will need tending. As well as the beehives needing maintenance throughout the year. Whether you prefer learning about the bees or planting to help them, you are needed!

Fairs and Festivals Committee

Love to talk bees? Here is your chance! We are currently looking to form a committee that will spearhead the many fairs and festivals that we are invited to throughout the year. You would represent the club, help set up/take down with other volunteers and be in charge of reporting back to the club at the following meeting. Please let us know if you are willing and interested.

Meeting Assistance

This once a month help would mean the world to us! We are looking for a few hands to move tables and chairs, set up the projection screen and get the food set up. We arrive to unlock the doors by 5:45, and usually stay after the meeting about only 15 minutes. Could you come a few minutes early or stay a few minutes late? What a difference that would make to us! No commitment needed, just come as often as you can. However- be ready to be very much appreciated!
