What can you do to help the honey bees?

We invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings to learn more about bees and beekeeping.

Today, honey bees face difficult odds for survival. Bee populations are threatened by many factors including habitat loss, diseases, as well as pesticide and herbicide use.

Join us as we increase awareness, provide forage by planting in our gardens, reduce the use of pesticides, and share in promoting strong, sustainable, bee-friendly communities.

Regular monthly meetings of the Sonoma County Beekeepers Association are held on the second Monday of each month, click here to find out MORE. The meetings cover a wide range of interesting topics for beekeepers and the general public alike. Everyone is welcome!
