Our goal is to provide opportunities to learn safe & proper practices for the management of honey bees; and in the process, build a stronger beekeeping community. Visitors are always welcome.
Club meetings are held at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of every month except December. We meet at the Somervell County Citizens Center at 209 SW Barnard Street in Glen Rose Texas. Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to be a club member to attend. Meetings last about two hours. Each meeting covers a topical beekeeping subject; a discussion about local apiary conditions; and a raffle for beekeeping gear. The meeting is always attended by very experienced area beekeepers who can answer your questions.
Several times during the year, club members meet at a bee yard for some hands on beekeeping. Field Day topics could include: “How to Do a Hive Inspection”; “Treating Your Bees for Pests”; “Hiving Feral Bees”; and more.
Annual Honey Tasting Event
Each year the regular October meeting is dedicated to the Dino-Bee Club’s annual Honey Tasting. You don’t want to miss this event. Members bring their honey for all to taste. You will be amazed at the variety of colors, textures, and tastes you will experience.
Glen Rose, Texas sits atop limestone formations famous for dinosaur footprints. Our club celebrates that dinosaur connection in it’s name: The Dino-Bee Club.
