On March 6th at the monthly meeting we will have Robert Clark break apart and reassemble his Demonstration Hive that he has been using in the last four decades of teaching beekeeping in the Pacific Northwest.
Through the generous support of the many of the major beekeeping supply houses who donated parts of this hive, we have a nice collection of various beginning, intermediate, and migratory equipment and devices that now belong to the SVBA for our use.
He will also show you a light-weight swarm catching and transporting box to provide ideas for your own use.
Note, that if you want to join the club. Purchase your membership for 2018 by seeing Andy Matelich at the meeting.

Come and listen to Charles explain what to do as the bees are starting to fly out and gather pollen and nectar, on those non rainy days.
|8:00-9:00||Demonstration Hive Demonstration by Robert Clark
Robert will explain about his demonstration hive and how it is useful for teaching people about beekeeping. He also will show a light-weight swarm catching box for those that would like to gather colonies as they try to find a new home.
Meetings are 7:00-9:00 pm on the first Tuesday of each month at Meadowbrook Interpretive Center (directions to Meadowbrook) and are open to the public.
