Our mission is to provide a social and educational organization to promote and improve the art of beekeeping.
The El Dorado Beekeepers was established in 2011 and is a nonprofit organization. We gather monthly to promote and support beekeepers and beekeeping in El Dorado County.
Membership meetings are held the second Sunday of the month from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm, and are open to the public. Come early to the meeting and chat with other beekeepers.
The one-way driveway to the Senior Center is accessed from Tunnel St. and uphill at Robin Court. Look for our yellow signs to help direct you.

Learn about solitary bees
This month we welcome entomologist Steve Peterson, who has been managing and conducting research on solitary bees for over 20 years. Steve will give an in depth talk on the life cycle, nesting materials and management steps of these bees. He is currently managing a population of blue orchard bees (aka orchard mason bees).
We’ll also be holding our raffle. All re-gifted, gently used or plant donations are greatly appreciated. Receive a free raffle ticket for every donated item you bring. Our club store will also be open. For sale are hats, tee-shirts, tote bags, mite wash cups and pollen patties.
After the meeting many members head to Placerville Brewing Company for dinner and more bee conversation. Join us there!
See everyone at the meeting!
