Greetings! Our next regular meeting is scheduled for Sunday, September 19 at 2PM at the club hives. We’ll be doing inspection of our hives, demonstrating the process of taking off honey supers and frames to get ready for extraction and as always, members will be asking questions and getting lots of helpful answers. Hope to see you there!

We are following the current CDC recommendations regarding the use of masks, and are aware of the fact that they may change.

The club hives don’t have a proper address, but you can plug in 2057 Houghton Rd., Ithaca NY to a GPS. If you’re coming from the south on route 89, go left on Garrett, right on Houghton, and then the hives are within a couple hundred yards, on the right. There’s a grassy parking lot with two entrances on the right, which you’ll see first.
