Cooperation for Success

We recognize the challenges faced by bees and beekeepers and work together to succeed as a group.  This includes local breeding, swarm control, and sharing of equipment when possible.

Community Outreach

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for protecting local bees and creating awareness around the importance of pollinators to our food supply and ecosystems. We embrace opportunities for creating new advocates in our community by tabling or giving presentations.
