Bee tour


Southeastern Kentucky Beekeepers Association

The Southeast Kentucky Beekeepers meet at the Laurel County Cooperative Extension Service on the 3rd Thursday of each month from March through October. Meetings begin with a potluck dinner at 6 PM, so please bring a covered dish to share. Whether you're an experienced beekeeper or just starting out, everyone is welcome!

The remainder of the 2020 season has been cancelled due to meeting restrictions placed during the coronavirus pandemic. Paid members from the 2019 season may continue access to the shared use equipment at the Laurel County Extension office.
