Welcome to the Skagit Valley Beekeepers...

We're glad you're here. We are eager to share with you - our love and knowledge of beekeeping. We welcome new beekeepers as well as experienced folks as in the Skagit Valley Beekeepers Association. We have many members with multiple levels of experience, from beginning backyard beekeepers to the big commercial operations. We are interested in the different styles of beekeeping and in the many phases of beekeeping before and beyond honey production.

We hold monthly meetings with discussion and information presented about beekeeping. We also provide once a year a more formal classroom education using the curriculum developed by the Washington State Beekeepers Association, which allows beekeepers to study towards Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master Beekeeper status. 

What We Offer:
Monthly Meetings (2nd Thursday of each month).
Our Mentorship Program & we host occasional field days.
Use of the club extractors and other tools.
Annual Certified Beginning 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 visitors some of the joy of keeping bees. 

SVBA Membership is only $12.00 a year by check (use the Application form below) or $13.00 using our online payment system. Just click on the button. - We hope to see you at our next meeting!
