The Tri-State Beekeepers is an organization of hobbyists in Ohio, Marshall, and Belmont counties who are dedicated to promoting beekeeping. We meet monthly and host local and state speakers in an attempt to educate inexperienced beginners and foster camaraderie among more seasoned members. The meetings are always casual and supportive, drawing on the knowledge of veteran members in an exchange of techniques and know-how. We foster novice beekeepers through a mentor program, paring an experienced member with a newbee. We support a speakers bureau with individuals enthusiastic about presenting programs on bees and beekeeping for private and civic groups. The Tri-State Beekeepers Association welcomes all interested individuals to contact us for an informative and memorable experience.
