Linn-Benton Beekeepers' Association

Our goal is to provide an association of local beekeepers where we can learn, share and have fun. We have both local and national speakers at our monthly meetings providing you with current and relevant subjects to help you with your bees.

LBBA also provides outreach to the community by providing educational speakers, swarm removal and public exhibits.

Anyone is welcome at our meetings, we encourage you to become a paid member, but it is not required. We just want you to learn about bees! But.... the benefits of joining include:

    -Free use of the clubs extraction equipment

    -Use of our book and DVD library

    -Discount to Bee School

    -Inclusion on swarm list

    -Discount to American Bee Journal magazine


Monthly Meeting Change

Our monthly meetings have been changed to the third Wednesday of each month because of scheduling changes at our venue. This will start with the May meeting, the April meeting will be on the fourth Wednesday (April 23rd) as previously scheduled. Be sure to update your calendar!
