Each year the Pierce County Beekeepers Association organizes a booth at the Washington State Fair as a way to engage and educate the public on the importance of honey bees to our agricultural crops. Local associations usually help by supplying volunteers for the duration of the fair, this year it runs September 2-25th.
Volunteers get a free pass to the fair and free parking, so if you have interest in checking out the fair this is a way to go! If you have interest in volunteering at the Washington State Fair, please contact Andy Matelich at 253-683-0789 or firstname.lastname@example.org for scheduling times. Most shifts are about 4 hrs.
