“When California was wild, it was one sweet bee garden throughout its entire length,
north and south, and all the way across from the snowy Sierra to the ocean.”
~John Muir, “The Bee Pastures”
Welcome to the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association, founded in 1873, to foster the interest of bee culture and beekeeping within Los Angeles County. Our membership is composed of commercial and urban beekeepers, and bee enthusiasts. Our purpose is the care and welfare of the honey bee. We achieve this through the education of ourselves and the general public, supporting honey bee research, and practicing best management practices for the keeping of bees.
