Members Corner

SEMBA is for anyone interested in the honeybee, from the new beekeeper to beekeepers with 30+ years of experience.  We are committed to providing educational programs, supporting new beekeepers by pairing them with an experienced member, and support honeybee research.   

Monthly meetings are the second Thursday of every month, February through November, 6:30 – 8:00, at Quarry Hill Nature Center in Rochester.   No meetings in December or January.   Dues are $20 for the year & includes all family members.

Meetings are informal, with a wide range of topics throughout the year. 

NewBee Fundamentals start at 6:30, with a topic and QA time for the beginning beekeeper.  This will walk the NewBee through the year, with suggestions of what to do each month.   At 7:00 is a more in-depth presentation for all beekeepers and wannabees.  Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend both sessions.  


Join us at a meeting as our guest.  Then please consider going the extra step to help support the club by becoming a member.  Dues help offset the club costs of room rental fees, speaker fees and donations to support bee research and education. 

Membership includes but is not limited to: access to free use of club equipment, access to club library, participation in door prize drawings, use of educational hives, special events (such as the pizza party) and a vote in elections.
