History of Calgary Beekeepers

The Club started in the early 1960’s as a group of long-time beekeepers getting together to discuss their solutions to successful beekeeping in the Calgary area. By 1978 membership was 100 active beekeepers.

During the 1980's, the club became relatively inactive and then bounced back in the late 80's and has been consistently gaining support since then. The Club is now well-established and growing along with the worldwide interest in bees and beekeeping.
