Albert Chubak, a dedicated bee enthusiast and beekeeper since 1999, is a valuable and trusted resource to the beekeeping community. His passion for teaching and his comprehensive knowledge of bee behavior have made him an indispensable guide for both novice and experienced beekeepers alike. Albert’s exploration of the intriguing world of honey bees includes his involvement in the American Beekeeping Federation, where he has contributed articles for new beekeepers. In 2013, he created the Mini Urban Beehive (MUB), a small hive dedicated to nurturing young honey bee colonies. Through this hands-on experience, he acquired a profound understanding of hive dynamics, allowing him to instruct both budding beekeepers and young learners. In 2017, Albert’s dedication and innovation were recognized with the prestigious P. F. Thurber Award for Inventiveness by the Western Apicultural Society, in honor of his groundbreaking Eco Bee Box and his publication, Mini Urban Beehive. Albert is an active member of the American Beekeeping Federation, the Western Apicultural Society, Eastern Apicultural Society, and Saskatoon Bee Club. In 2017, Albert’s writings led to an invitation to teach beekeeping throughout Jordan. Albert Chubak is a father of three and resides in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, with his wife, Camellea, and their tabby cat, Tiggar. Apart from his involvement in beekeeping, Albert’s pursuits extend to teaching, traveling, woodwork, restoring early Volkswagen Beetles, gardening, and finding humor in life’s moments.
