Meetings are at Saint John's Cathedral in Denver. 1350 Washington St. Denver, CO 80203 (Map)
6:30 - 7:00 pm we have our New-Bees meeting where we cover topics helpful to newer beekeepers and give time to voice your questions in a smaller group
7:00 - 9:00 is our main meeting covering topics across the board in beekeeping
We strive to bring in speakers from local universities, businesses and offer up our own experience and knowledge to keep us all up-to-date on the very best methods and ideas
Park in the church's lot just north of 13th Ave and Washington St but please do not park in the spot marked for the Bishop
