Welcome to the Skagit Valley Beekeepers...

We're glad you're here, and we're eager to share with you - our love of beekeeping. We are always hoping to include new beekeepers as well as experienced folks as new members. We have members with multiple levels of experience, from beginners to commercial. We are interested in the many styles of beekeeping and in the many phases of beekeeping before and beyond honey production.

With us, you are able to attend meetings with various interesting speakers and ask questions. We also provide for more formal classroom education followed by hands on instruction. We use the curriculum developed by the Washington State Beekeepers Association, our parent organization, which allows beekeepers to study toward Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master Beekeeper status.

We offer:
Monthly meetings (2nd Thursday)
Mentorship Program & Field Days
Use of the club extractor and other tools
Annual Certified Apprentice Beekeeping Class

Social opportunities: 
In July we have a potluck family picnic, in March a potluck meeting with silent auction, and during a few days in August - we set up our booth at the Skagit County Fair and share with lots of people some of the joy of keeping bees. 

SVBA Membership is only $12.00 a year - We hope you choose to join us...
