The Beekeepers’ Guild of San Mateo County holds meetings the first Thursday of each month, featuring experienced members or special guests who talk about honey bees and/or beekeeping. Meetings start at 7:00 pm; additionally, at 6:30 pm the BEEginner’s Corner meets for informal discussion on beginning beekeeping.
Guild meetings normally take place at Trinity Presbyterian Church in San Carlos. However, at present we are using virtual meetings via Zoom and Webinar Jam. Specifics and links to join the meetings they will be emailed to the Guild’s member roster and our Google email group before each meeting.
