Calgary and District Beekeepers Association

Welcome! We are a non-profit organization promoting and encouraging good beekeeping practices in southern Alberta and Calgary in particular. We host both formal meetings with an information presentations, the less formal “Bees & Beers” at the Forest Lawn Legion, and seasonal events such as our summer Bar-Bee-Q.

We organize group/club buys of packages, bee supplies and inform you of upcoming courses, seminars and other special events.

Whether you are a long-time beekeeper or find yourself bee-less in Calgary, you are welcome to join our club and attend our events — see Membership Signup.

This website includes practical beekeeping advice for all seasons, with details about swarm management, bee disease and treatment options, feeding, and overwintering.
