Mt. Baker Beekeepers Association (MBBA) is a group of people who like to share their love of bees. You do not have to be a beekeeper to belong to MBBA.
Beekeeping isn't all play. It requires a desire to learn about bees, time out of every week during spring, summer and fall, and heavy lifting. Beekeeping requires some education. A mentor or networking with local beekeepers is a must.
Here at MBBA, we offer monthly meetings which are free and open to the public. While 2020 and 2021 have been challenging due to COVID 19 State mandated restrictions, MBBA’s Board Members have gone to conducting virtual meetings.
Having virtual meetings has allowed us to reach out, be available to the community, to beekeepers and individuals interested in bees/beekeeping. Our meetings include;
-Monthly “BEEginners” meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month 6-7:00 pm – moderated by Ted McFall, experienced beekeeper, who provides open discussions on beginning beekeeping.
- Monthly “General” meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month 7-8:30 pm. During this meeting, we have a planned agenda that include beekeeping topics and we may have speakers who provide presentations on important topics.
Other changes to MBBA include; updating to a modern mobile responsive website and introduction of social media through our dedicated Facebook page "Mt. Baker Beekeepers Assn.".
