Your Association Executive for 2017:


    Discussions about beekeeping in the Thunder Bay area happen on the Thunder Bay Beekeepers' Association facebook page. It's a venue that we don't have to pay for! Since we only have 4 meetings a year, we use facebook to chat regularly about our bees. It is a great option for people learning about beekeeping, as there are a number of experienced beekeepers who are willing to share their knowledge. As well, it's just a great place to see what other beekeepers are doing in their yards and sharing information that might be helpful to you. read more...
