About SEBC

Southeast Beekeeping Club (SEBC)
Mission Statement


The Southeast Beekeeping Club exists to promote beekeeping education, resources, and fellowship for beekeepers. Each month we gather in Parker, Colorado to share our experiences and support each other as beekeepers.

Our on-going goals are:
  • To champion the wellbeing of honey bees
  • Assist beekeepers petition local municipalities, counties, and cities to pass reasonable legislation regarding apiculture
  • Support new beekeepers and community interest through outreach at our monthly meetings and other public events
  • Define and demonstrate BMPs (Best Management Practices) for the Colorado prairie
SEBC has an impressive lending library!

Beekeeping is a complicated science. Don't let that deter you; worthwhile activities often take a little effort.

This is why SEBC has a large lending library filled with books on apiculture. We lend our books at no charge. We ask that you bring them back to the next monthly meeting.

Many of the books are approved by our members. Reading beekeeping books is a great way to increase your knowledge on keeping honey bees. The library is brought to our monthly meeting. Donations to the library are appreciated.

        Membership

Dues for the Southeast Beekeeping Club are $15 a year (Jan 1 - Dec 31). If members wish to join the Colorado State Beekeeping Association through the SEBC, it is an additional $7 (which is a $3 savings over joining the CSBA as an individual). Your dues go toward the cost of club-owned equipment (for member use), books for our lending library, bottled water for our pot-lucks and other asociated club expenses.

SEBC meetings attract people from all over the Denver Metro area, Littleton, Englewood, Centennial, Aurora, and Lakewood, in Denver County, Jefferson County, and Arapahoe County. A majority of beeks come from Aurora, Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch, Parker, Castle Rock, Kiowa, Elizabeth, Franktown, and other exotic locations in Douglas County and Elbert County.

Regardless of where you live along the Colorado Front Range, a trip to the Pinery in Parker on the first Wednesday of the month is always worthwhile. Bring your family, bring your apiculture questions, and be ready to learn and share.
