The Tri-State Beekeepers is an organization of hobbyists in Ohio, Marshall, and Belmont counties who are dedicated to promoting beekeeping. We meet monthly and host local and state speakers in an attempt to educate inexperienced beginners and foster camaraderie among more seasoned members. The meetings are always casual and supportive, drawing on the knowledge of veteran members in an exchange of techniques and know-how. We foster novice beekeepers through a mentor program, paring an experienced member with a newbee.

Mission Statement

Steve Roth's picture

As our mission, we are dedicated to the protection and preservation of the honeybee.  To accomplish that goal, we put an emphasis on education of the public in the value of the honeybee as a pollinator and the perils that it now faces, education of the novice beekeeper in proper management of a colony, and education of the experienced beekeeper in new concepts and practices while providing a forum through which they can pass their knowledge and experience to the next generation.
