Max’s Minute

Due to pandemic restrictions, we are still limited on our meetings being held in the Collin’s Learning Center. However, since the weather remains nice, we want to continue our monthly meetings and fulfill our mission of education and assistance to beekeepers. This month, we will meet outside around the campfire. Look for the yellow club banner and bring your lawn chair.

Program: Prepping for Fall and Winter – Paul Kenyon will present suggestions and tasks you should consider for getting your hive(s) ready for cold weather and insuring winter survival. Topics will include:

a. Hive inspection
b. Honey storage
c. Feeding the hive
d. Ventilation
e. Insulation and wind break
f. Equipment storage and cleaning

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.
