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.

California Master Beekeeper Program
This month we welcome club member Wendy Mather from the UC Davis Extension, California Master Beekeeper Program. Now in its fourth year, Wendy will be talking about what the program entails, how to enroll, its current progress and future goals.
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!
