As a volunteer-led organization, member dues are vital to help us further our educational mission. Annual dues of $20 may be paid online, mailed or delivered in person at our regular meeting.
Bee Prepared, a fee-based course designed to turn non-beekeepers into backyard beekeepers, is scheduled to begin 10/2/21. The next Beekeeping 101 will be held 9/11/21 then return to the first Saturday of the month in October. The class is free but requires online registration in compliance with our new COVID protocols.
We love bees and we are eager to share our passion. In additional to our classes focused on training aspiring beekeepers, Long Beach Beekeepers spreads the word at one-time and recurring events. Observation hives - one frame of honeycomb and bees from a working hive - enable us to show the inner workings of life inside the hive.
Our bees have traveled to preschools, home schools and elementary schools; neighborhood associations and street fairs; Girl Scout troops, garden clubs and Earth Day events.
Do you have a group that would like to meet our bees? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be a responsible beekeeper and a good neighbor by complying with local beekeeping ordinances.
Beekeeping equipment maybe purchased at local shops and online. Here are some reputable outlets that carry hive boxes, frames, protective gear, honey bees, honey extraction tools, jars and more.
The club does not remove swarms, but we can point you in the right direction for some reputable beekeepers.
