2020 Schedule of Events

We are back!  We are back!!  Kinda…  With the help of the Ohio State Beekeepers Association, of which we are an affiliate member, we are able to provide a virtual meeting and presentation on Thursday, September 17 at the usual 6:30 pm time.  We will begin with a few brief comments regarding club items, and then receive a real time presentation from our longtime friend Bob Hooker.  Bob is always very entertaining and will be speaking on the very timely topic of over wintering colonies.  Once OSBA has the program codes we will forward them to you so that you can actively participate.  If the program goes well, we will try to arrange subsequent Zoom presentations on our own.  While not meeting in person, we see this as a start that will lead to the eventual resumption of monthly meetings at the Good Zoo.  Please plan to attend and to participate as we return our club to normal life.  Watch this site for additional information concerning the September 17 meeting as it becomes available.

Welcome to the Tri-State Beekeepers Association website.  We are a group of hobbyists in Ohio, Marshall, and Belmont counties who are dedicated to promoting beekeeping. Our mission is to promote the art and science of beekeeping in the Wheeling/Tristate area and to offer educational and informational services to the public. We meet monthly and host local and state speakers in an attempt to educate 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, pairing 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.
