Advanced Bee Yard

Please join us for scheduled Advanced Bee Yard meetings, see posted schedule, while we prepare our Franklin Park Conservatory colonies for fall and then winter. Thanks to the diligent contributions of COBA leadership and members, we have two colonies this season that we are monitoring regularly.

The Advanced Bee Yard is open to all COBA members who have been keeping bees for at least one year. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from late April through September. We meet at the Franklin Park Conservatory’s Apiary which is located behind the caretakers building, which is at 1820 Franklin Park South. Enter the Franklin Park Conservatory, follow the road to the end of the road, and find a parking spot, then walk toward the caretakers building, and look for the apiary.
