Susquehanna Beekeepers Association
Serving Bradford, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Wyoming Counties
We are a group of people interested in promoting and learning about honeybees. Our members include commercial, sideline and hobby beekeepers, and interested people who are not beekeepers. We meet to learn more about bees and beekeeping from guest speakers, local experienced beekeepers, and field days which are open to anyone interested in hands-on experience. We publish an educational newsletter, and we have a teaching booth at the Harford Fair. Several members visit most of the schools in our area once each year to teach children about bees and beekeeping. Other members speak to adult groups, and some have been volunteers sent to foreign countries to help beekeepers and to learn from them. We have an education fund, invested with the Community Foundation of Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties, designed to help young people who want to become beekeepers or study entomology.
