Welcome to the Tri-State Beekeepers Association website. We are a group of hobbyists in the northern panhandle of West Virginia and the surrounding counties of Ohio and Pennsylvania who are dedicated to promoting the pollinators, especially the honeybee, and beekeeping. Our mission is to nurture the art and science of beekeeping in the Wheeling/Tri-State area and to offer educational and informational services to the public. We meet monthly and host local and state speakers to educate beginners and foster camaraderie among more seasoned members. The meetings are always casual and supportive, drawing on the knowledge of veteran members for an exchange of techniques and know-how to encourage newer beekeepers. We offer a novice beekeeping program and mentor assistance, pairing an experienced member with a beginner.
We support a speakers bureau comprised of individuals who enthusiastically present programs on bees and beekeeping to local schools, organizations, and civic groups. The Tri-State Beekeepers Association welcomes all interested individuals to contact us for an informative and memorable experience.
