Cook DuPage Beekeepers Mentoring Get Together

The next mentoring get together will be held on Sunday, July 5th at 8:00 am.  The informal get together meets at the York Rd. McDonalds in Hinsdale. It’s a good opportunity to meet with other beekeepers in the area to “Talk Bees” and share some knowledge over a cup of coffee and an Egg McMuffin.  For further information and directions, visit the Calendar of Events page.
