Mountain Area Beekeepers Club Starting! was created by Debeeze
ATTN: Mountain Beekeepers AND "WannaBees"
Beekeeping above 7000' has challenges and rewards that the Flatlanders don't experience. We'd like to get together, share our unique situations, and help each other and the girls.
On Feb 7, there will be a meeting about starting a club for all interested current and future Beekeepers.
Meeting is at 7:00PM at Conifer Community Park on Foxton Road.
If you need more info - PM me or call 303-718-2707. (if no answer, leave message).

We in the club can't require others to do anything, but we can suggest it and offer information on how to protect their hives (and the bears). Our last meeting included a lot of discussion on fences and help from the DOW.
Our next meeting is March 13 @ 7PM. Conifer Community Park @Beaver Ranch If you are a beekeeper, know a beekeeper or want to be a beekeeper, join us!
Our discussion will be about equipment and woodware. We will be making a bulk order later in March, so if you need some items, save yourself a trip down the hill!

Thank you for the update Debeeze! It seems like the bears could pose a significant issue, both for you and for them. The meeting has been added to our calendar, and if any changes occur, please do let us all know. I know I'm very interested in anyone making homemade mountain honey!
