Meeting Updates

Thanks to all the members and guests who joined us for the CDBA virtual meeting on Saturday, March 20, 2021. There was a great presentation and follow-up discussion about the process for making spring packages, followed by an open question and answer session that dealt with several beekeeping questions. Five lucky attendees were randomly selected to receive special giveaway items!

Our next general CDBA meeting will be held on Saturday April 24th, 2021! We will have a presentation about what to look for and what to expect in hives after new bee packages have been installed. We will then have an open question and answer session for attendees. If you would like to submit a question in advance for the Q&A session, please use this form.

A link for attending the meeting via Zoom will be sent out to registered members once it has been set up. If you are not a CDBA member and would like to join the meeting as a guest, send an e-mail request to the CDBA Webmaster.
