Joining BABA

Our Mission

It is our mission to educate current and future beekeepers alike through a wide offering of different events and partnerships.  We are dedicated to educating beekeepers, bee-enthusiasts, and the general public alike. To further this effort we endeavor to grow our offerings every year to better serve the interests and needs of our members.

We do this through regular club meetings with guest speakers, our annual bee school, the tour de hives a bicycle tour of beehives, field days and meet the beekeeper events.  Our club meetings are held every six weeks and we have two apiary sites that members can sign up to help maintain.
