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.
What we support
Through support from donors like you and other various fundraisers throughout the year, we are able to continue our mission to support education. Below is where we have used those funds.
