Our general meetings will be held the First Thursday of the Month, at 6:30 PM in Yates Hall, on Pittsburg State University campus, Pittsburg, Kansas. Other related events will be announced via this website, facebook, email and/or text messaging.
Education and sharing information is our goal. We will include beginning beekeeping classes and more advanced beekeeping instruction throughout the year including lecture, and field experiences. HBASEK meetings will often feature guest speakers who teach from experience, utilizing hands-on demonstration, discussion with the audience, and multi-media presentation. Presentation subjects will vary, but will cover the many facets of beekeeping strongly emphasizing the beekeeper's calendar for our geographic area.

To Make A Prairie
Emily Dickinson, 1830 - 1886
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
