Meeting Times

12:00 Noon - We hold an ongoing series of beginning beekeeping classes monthly throughout the course of our beekeeping season.  There are no prerequisites. The classes are intended for students with no previous experience who want general information that will assist them to be successful keeping bees their first year.  Our classes follow the Beginning Hobbyist Beekeeper curriculum established by the Washington State Beekeepers Association for the student wishing to pursue optional state beekeeping certification.   An optional beginning beekeepers manual is available for an additional $20.00. NOPBA requires a $10.00 annual membership fee to participate in the classes.
