Title: The Other Bees: Beekeepers’ role in conservation of native bees in North America.
“As beekeepers, we love our bees. At the same time, in New York state, there are well over 400 other species of bees! Beekeepers can serve a role as front-line educators and defenders of these other important pollinators in our region.” -Jason Hamilton

Welcome to FLBC

Welcome to the Finger Lakes 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.
