East Central Ohio Beekeepers Association


Honey Bear Container order is in!

If you ordered honey bear containers, Thursday's meeting is your last chance to pick that order up. If orders go unclaimed, the order reverts to ECOBA.

The East Central Ohio Beekeepers Association provides a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in bees to come and gather great resources and knowledge about the honeybee. Practical knowledge, workshops and demonstrations are planned throughout the year. At every meeting we discuss important bee topics along with a Q & A with a panel of experienced beekeepers. Everyone is welcome! 

Our mission is to support beekeeping in the east central Ohio area counties of Fairfield, Licking, Muskingum and Perry. We provide our membership with educational opportunities, updates on current beekeeping information and methods, and promote public awareness about the important benefits of beekeeping to our 
global food supply

Our meetings are held the third Thursday of each month beginning at 6:30 PM - visit our Schedule & Calendar page to see all our upcoming events.
