Monongalia County Beekeepers Association

About Us

We are located in Monongalia County, West Virginia.  We are a non-profit beekeeping club with membership open to the public.  Our members come from the area surrounding Morgantown that share a common interest in honey bees and beekeeping.  Most of our member keep bees as a hobby, but some of our members are involved in beekeeping as a side business.


Monongalia County Beekeepers Association in West Virginia usually meets the first Tuesday month. Typically meetings are in the evenings from 7PM to 9PM when we meet to discuss all aspects of beekeeping.  Meetings are held in the Monongalia County - WVU Extension Service Office (click here for directions). There is usually one or more presentations from members and guest speakers as well as lively discussions with question and answer periods.


Mission Statement:


We welcome new members who want to learn about the art and science of beekeeping, including sharing effective techniques, coping with problems and challenges, and supporting each other in our efforts.


Our goal is to provide information to the public about the valuable role of honey bees in agriculture and nature and to teach members the appropriate techniques for managing, controlling and expanding our bee keeping practices.
