Volunteer

We need you to ‘bee’ a volunteer!

Everything SCBA does is powered by the volunteer beekeeper community.

Join us! You will learn a lot about bees and beekeeping, and have fun too.

Share your talent and time with SCBA. Everyone has something to give!

Here are some of the many ways to volunteer:

  • Hosting refreshments for a meeting
  • Staffing the SCBA booth at festivals and community events
  • Set-up/Clean-up meetings
  • Serving on the Executive Board
  • Becoming or assisting a Cluster Leader in your area
  • Positions of Librarian, Newsletter Editor, Social Media Editor/Monitors, or Webmaster
  • Organizing volunteer events
  • Education and Presentations
  • Gardening Group volunteer
  • Providing services such as (but not limited too): accountant, lawyer, graphic arts, photography, video production, web tech, social media, etc.

If you haven’t yet volunteered – buzz right in! Fill out the form below or contact a Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@sonomabees.org


Education and Presentations

Members, would you like to participate in SCBA school presentations?

Volunteers needed! Our presenters are often school teachers or retired school teachers, but most importantly have experience beekeeping and like to talk about the bees. Some of them have jobs related to beekeeping, such as extracting bees from structures, which is very interesting to students.

Educators often work in teams but also can present alone. We have abundant teaching materials and props that are appropriate for many grade levels. See this link for an outline for possible topics.

If you are a SCBA member and would like to join our education efforts, please contact our education coordinator. It would be helpful if you mentioned your availability (days and times) and, as always, thanks for volunteering!

E-mail education@sonomabees.org to sign-up for school presentations
