Fall/Winter Meeting Locations
The St. Clair Beekeepers Association meets monthly during the winter, generally on the last Friday of each month at 7:00 pm. In the winter, the meeting location alternates each month between the St. Clair County Farm Bureau and the Madison County Farm Bureau offices. The spring and summer meetings ( May- September) are held outdoors at a member’s home or apiary, This allows the members and visitors the opportunity to actually open and inspect beehives and experience beekeeping firsthand.
