What can you do to help the honeybees?

We invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Today, honeybees face enormous odds for survival. Bee populations are threatened by many factors, including loss of habitats, pesticide and herbicide use, and diseases. Join us to increase awareness, provide forage by planting in your garden, reduce your use of pesticides and share in promoting and providing strong, sustainable bee-friendly communities.
Regular monthly meetings of the Sonoma County Beekeepers’ Association are held on the second Monday of each month, at 7 p.m. at the 4-H Center in Rohnert Park (behind 24 Hour Fitness). The meetings cover a wide range of interesting topics for beekeepers and the general public.

Everyone is welcome!

Our goal is to increase interest in and knowledge of bees and beekeeping for the hobby and commercial beekeeper, and to educate the general public in the value of bees.
