Education

 

 

SCBA members are committed to the education and preservation of the honey bee. Learn about pollination, honey bee biology and how you can help save honey bees and pollinators. We have a hive full of knowledgable and entertaining speaker/presenters prepared to teach through  public talks and educational exhibits.

Education is key to becoming a good steward of the honey bee. Reach out to fellow beekeepers and engage in ‘bee talk’ – it is infectious and everyone has a story, theory, method and reasoning for it all. Becoming a SCBA member gives you access to a library filled with books, dvds, and more – all having something to do with the wonderful Apis mellifera.
