An Important Message From 

Beekeepers of the Northern Shenandoah

If you are a property owner and have no interest in keeping bees yourself but would consider allowing a BONS member to maintain hives on your property, we would be glad to make those arrangements for you. You would be helping the overall environment, especially the honey bees!
Please contact us and we will be more than happy to give you the details. .

What kind of music do bees dance to?


Bee Bop!

Journal Club - 3-minute motivators!

Persuasion and Presentation

Have you read a good book about bees lately or discovered a great source of invaluable information about beekeeping and want to share?

 

Please consider giving a 3-minnte presentation to the club at one of our meetings.  It's a great way to get to know other club members and to let them know about you.



Contact Buce Bryant and get involved!
