Our Mission Statement:
Our purpose as a nonprofit (501C3) organization will be to educate the public about the role that the honeybee plays in our own existence. This is achieved through programs made available to the public with emphasis on educational programs starting at the elementary level and working with seminars, hands on demonstrations, through electronic media & a yearly Honey Festival.
