The Bee Club is designed to promote and steward the local Honey Bee population in conjunction with the Western Illinois Beekeeper's Association. The club's overarching mission is to spread the importance of the Honey bee's role to all members of the Knox community. The club welcomes all those interested in learning about bees to take part in bee-related crafts and other educational activities.

Club Objectives

  • Stop misconceptions of bees by providing educational workshops to differentiate between bees, wasps, and other insects.
  • Create an immersive program that teaches club members and the Knox community to be aware of bees and how to properly keep them, showing honey bee documentaries, and sharing informative resources on bees.
  • Promote biodiversity by managing the Honey bee colony and helping them thrive.
