NCBA Sponsored Community Programs: NCBA Volunteers provide a variety of educational and public outreach programs each year, including the Beginning Beekeeping Class taught in January each year, grade school educational programs, and an outreach presence at a variety of fairs and shows. The Swarm Hotline provides the public with a central point of contact to report swarms during the spring and summer. We also sponsor a web-based forum and an email-based discussion list (list serv) as information resources open to all with an interest in beekeeping. Click here for more information.
Volunteering: NCBA is an all-volunteer organization. Without the time and effort of our member-volunteers, there would be no NCBA or any of its programs. Many hands make light work – please consider contributing to our success! When you see a NCBA activity you may enjoy joining in on, let us know – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
