About Us



The Columbiana & Mahoning County Beekeepers' Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1984. Our membership dedicates themselves to the protection and preservation of honey bees. We work to educate the public about the important role honey bees play as pollinators and demonstrate the value to our ecology and economy. We strive to help educate novice beekeepers in the proper management of colonies as well as provide instruction to experienced beekeepers regarding new concepts and practices and provide a forum through which we can all share our knowledge and experiences.
