Beekeepers of the Bitterroot formed a few years ago when founding members determined the need to share knowledge among local beekeepers, "newbees" and "wannabees".

Our club has a wide variety of members, from people who don't yet have bees to those who have been keeping bees for 30+ years.

Our Mission

  • To disseminate information concerning honey bees and beekeeping.

  • To hold public forums at which beekeepers can provide information and/or services to each other and to the community. 

  • To serve as a resource to local beekeepers and all individuals interested in the nature and value of honey bees. 

  • To encourage good management practices as a means of maintaining healthy apiaries.

  • To lobby and provide support to our lawmakers about the importance of bees to agriculture.
