• Meetings

    Puget Sound Beekeepers Association is committed to educating both beekeepers and the public about honey bees.  One way we do this is by curating interesting and renowned speakers for our meetings.  All meetings are free and open to the public. We hope you enjoy this year’s schedule of speakers and topics!

    PSBA meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month, excluding July, November, and December. Typically, a beekeeper lesson is offered at 6:30pm and main presentation starts at 7:30pm.

    Meetings are at the Graham Visitors Center at the Washington Park Arboretum. The Arboretum is also home to the PSBA Apiary, which is behind the greenhouses.
