The Jacksonville Beekeepers Association was founded in 2010 in an effort to provide support to local hobbyists and professional beekeepers. New and experienced beekeepers come together to help each other with questions, concerns and other beekeeping related challenges. Equally as important is the role we provide to our community. Through our efforts to provide education to the public, we are securing the important role honey bees play in our environment. A strong and active club is the key to this success!
