Welcome to the Backyard Beekeepers Association!
The Backyard Beekeepers Association is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization founded in May 2015. Our mission is to promote the art and technique of beekeeping through education and support of small scale backyard hobbyist beekeepers and interested non-beekeepers.
The goal of our Association is to educate members to be practical, responsible and successful as they tend their hives; and to increase public knowledge about the importance honey bees have to our environment, our ecology and our food production.
We seek to accomplish this goal through online and local classes, public event presentations, and monthly community meetings were we share our ideas and experiences.
If you want to become a beekeeper or are interested in saving the honey bee, Join Us and find out what the buzz is all about!
A Word from the President
“As we wait, patiently or otherwise, for Spring to arrive it looks as though it might arrive in a boat. I hope you all (and your bees) are above the water line and don’t have to foray out into the world too often until the waters drain away. Come join us for our very friendly and educational monthly meetings, every third Thursday @ the Deer Park Senior Center! Doors open at 6pm, education begins at 6:30pm. Hope to see you there!”
