Happy New Year!

It's never too early to start thinking about and planning for this year's honey bees. The Olympia Beekeeper's Association is a fabulous resource for education, bees, fellowship, mentorship and troubleshooting help as you prepare to install your first or hundredth hive this season! We hope to see you at our 2016 meetings on the second Monday of each month. We're planning a great roster of speakers and programs for the year. If you're thinking about having bees one day or simply appreciate them and want to learn more, the association is a great place to start.
