Welcome Beekeepers and those interested in finding out about local beekeeping!
The club was founded in 1971 by beekeepers from Whatcom and Skagit Counties, in collaboration with the County Cooperative Extension Service and the late Roy Thurber, former State Bee inspector in our area, bee gadgeteer, and prolific author of articles for the bee magazines.
We welcome ALL levels of beekeeper enthusiasts from those just looking for information about keeping bees to the advanced level beekeepers! Come to our meetings to learn about beekeeping and network with others!
We wish to encourage our general membership to join with us by attending board meetings and giving us your suggestions. A day seldom passes that the Board doesn’t exchange a few emails. If you would like to be included in these discussions, just let us know by replying to this email or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite our members to get involved in committees with the board and share their experience. It’s up to you how involved you wish to bee.
Here’s to a great 2020 of successful beekeeping!
