WillBees is a non-profit organization that raises awareness of the products and services of the honey bee hive, encourages cooperation among local beekeepers, contributes to the advancement of education about beekeeping and its related activities, and offers support to our members and neighboring communities.

As a WillBees member, you will have access to beekeeping tools such as honey extractors and “learning” bins for community presentations.

We meet every third Wednesday of the month (except for July and December) from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Will County Farm Bureau at 100 Manhattan Rd in Joliet, IL.



WillBees publishes an ongoing newsletter with relevant content throughout the year and links to ongoing education opportunities. Please sign up on the sidebar or become a member to begin receiving them.




While WillBees does not sell package bees or nucs, we are providing information about local sellers of package bees and nucs that may be of interest to you.
