Membership in the Los Angeles County Bee Association has many benefits: 

  • Discounts for magazines (American Bee Journal and Bee Culture). The latest information comes to you on a monthly basis, with articles by our industry's leading researchers and beekeepers. All levels of beekeepers can learn from these articles.
  • Receive Buzzings! the LACBA monthly newsletter, featuring a recap of our meetings, the latest information on upcoming events, the state of beekeeping in Los Angeles County, California, nationally, and worlwide.
  • We have 10 great meetings a year where:
    • Speakers present the latest of what is going on in beekeeping.
    • We discuss issues we are having with our own bees and receive valuable insight and information.
    • We receive information on a national level.
    • We become involved on a legislative level. 
    • We learn what is affecting the bee world globally and how we may be of service.
  • Beekeeping Classes 101 begin in February and are free to LACBA members who are current with their dues. 
  • We learn responsible beekeeping in an urban environment. 
  • LACBA members volunteer at the LA County Fair Bee Booth where we share what we have learned about honeybees with the general public. It's also a great oppotunity for us to test our own knowledge of beekeeping through interaction with the curious of all ages. 
  • LACBA members participate in AgDayLA where thousands of 3rd and 4th graders learn about bees.
  • It's a great place to bee for the new bee and the experienced bee keeper. Interaction between varying levels of beekeepers elicits cross-pollination in reseach, knowledge, application, and change for the benefit all.
