June 2022 Meeting

The May meeting of Big Sky Beekeepers will be held at 6:00pm on Thursday June 9 at the club apiary, located in front of Ten Spoon Winery, 4175 Rattlesnake Drive in Missoula. We will be inspecting hives, so bring your bee suit.

Michael Skeels has created a new Facebook group to facilitate sharing our beekeeping experience with other Missoula area beekeepers. Its purpose is to provide a place for beekeepers at all levels of experience to ask questions and have them answered by seasoned local beekeepers. Check it out at:
