COBKA Beginners Corner

Just a reminder to all newer beekeepers that before each COBKA meeting we hold a "Beginners Corner" starting at 5:30. Club mentors monitor the discussions and we split into groups if the numbers allow. 

Are you thinking about getting bees or have less than a year of beekeeping experience? Our beginner's corner is a time in a small informal group situation for you to ask any questions, share what is going on in your hives, or to prepare for the next season ahead.  Please feel free to join us in a relaxed and open setting.

Not a true beginner but want to come and visit about bees before the general meeting begins? Please join us in the main meeting room at 5:30!


Hope to See you There!
