What We Do

The focus of the association is beekeeping in southern Alberta and Calgary in particular. The club hosts both formal meetings with an information focus in a meeting facility, the less formal "Bees & Beers" at the Forest Lawn Legion and seasonal events such as our summer Bar-Bee-Q.

We organize group/club buys of nucs, bee supplies and inform you of upcoming courses, seminars and other special events.

 

Whether you are a long-time beekeeper or find yourself bee-less in Calgary, you are welcome to join our club and attend our events.
