GENERAL MEETINGS

General Meetings are held at the Allmendinger Center – WSU Puyallup Research and Extension Facility, the first Monday of every month, at 7pm and are open to existing and prospective members.

BEEKEEPING CLASSES

The PCBA offers Beekeeping classes to all its members. We currently have Beginner, Intermediate/ Apprentice and Sustainability Classes which are held year-round on the first Monday of the month at 6pm at the WSU Puyallup Extension Campus (2606 W Pioneer, Puyallup WA).  

We follow the OSU Master Beekeeping program and also the WASBA Journeyman program to allow our members to follow the education path that best suits them. We utilize The Beekeepers Handbook as well as the WASBA handbook. In addition to classroom training, you will also have the opportunity to receive hands-on experience with expert beekeepers in our Apiary from April– October. 

 

APIARY DAYS

Apiary Days are held on the 1st Friday of the month and 3rd Saturday of the month March through October. Participation in the Apiary is weather dependent. Bring your bee gear and your questions as we inspect the hives in our Educational Apiary on the south side of the WSU Puyallup campus.

OSU MASTER BEEKEEPING CLASSES

PCBA has partnered with OSU for their Master Beekeeping Program and are excited to invite members to join the Apprentice, Journeyman, or Master programs. There are several ways to participate. Our PCBA program locally supports OMB participants with in-house lectures and hands on beekeeping in our Apiary.  We meet on the WSU campus at the Allmendinger Center on the very south end of the campus. If you can’t make the meetings you can still participate in the OSU/OMB online recorded sessions to meet your first year requirements.
