The goal of the SCBA Community Education Program is to educate the Sonoma County community on the importance of pollinators, in particular the honey bee. We do this through:
Presenting to students at local schools.
Engaging the public at fairs, parades, and other events.
Providing a swarm retrieval service to the public.
Beekeepers can do their best when it comes to their apiaries, but not everyone is or wants to be a beekeeper. Everyone, however, impacts pollinators in their daily lives through their choices and activities. Learning about honey bees and pollinators in general changes lives, especially those of the youth. The Community Education Program is how SCBA interacts and engages our neighbors across the county, continually reinforcing our place as knowledgeable and helpful beekeepers to the public at large.
