Our next meeting will be on Sunday, February 16, 2020  at 2pm at Cornell Cooperative  Extension (see below for directions).  We’ll have a little business first and then hear from Peter Sieling, on “drumming the bees”. He’s a fascinating guy: a leader in the club over in Bath, writer on all things bees, woodworking, and more. There’s a bunch of information on woodworking here: www.petersieling.com and books here: www.makingbeehives.com. He’s written “A Bee’s Guide to Managing Beekeepers”. I believe he’ll have some of his books for sale.

Hope to see you you there!

Welcome to FLBC

Welcome to the Fingerlakes Beekeepers Club page. FLBC is a community of over 100 beekeepers at all levels of experience and expertise whose purpose is to share knowledge and appreciation of honeybees, to improve the craftsmanship of its members, and to provide opportunities for friendship and conviviality among members and their families. We meet each third Sunday of the month at 2:00 PM. During October – March (except December)  we meet at the Cornell Cooperative Extension, 615 Willow Avenue in Ithaca. Anyone interested in honeybees is welcome to attend. During April – September, the season of hive management, meetings are at the Club Apiary on the “Back 40” of the Cayuga Nature Center. Four miles north of Ithaca on Highway 89, then left on Garrett, then right on Houghton. Grassy parking lot and hives are .1 mile on the right.

Beekeeping speakers, workshops and programs are sponsored throughout the year.
