June 23rd and 24th will be especially helpful for Door County Beekeepers! The new State Bee Inspector Donna Stine, will be in Door County visiting hives and helping with your questions. For the new beekeepers, the Inspector is not regulatory, rather, her role is to help educate and advise. If you are interested in having Donna visit your hives, please contact Dennis Marquardt at (262) 751-7239 or Dennis will be coordinating the visits with Donna to make her travels around the peninsula efficient.

On Thursday evening. Donna will be our guest speaker at the DCBC Club meeting. She will talk about what she saw during her inspections and offer advice to help you be a successful beekeeper.

About DCBC

Our mission is to promote the study, science and craft of beekeeping through education, encouragement and community for all Door County beekeepers, and raise awareness to the benefits of bees for our environment, ecology and local economy.

We meet once a month at various locations in Door County. The meetings usually include educational information presented by experienced local/regional beekeepers. In addition, there may be a hands-on event such as a "hive dive" prior to the meeting.

Anyone can join the Door County Beekeepers Club at anytime. Membership carries for one year. Members enjoy the benefits of meetings and resources available to them through the club.
