The Prince William Regional Beekeepers Association is open to all persons regardless of where they live or where, or if, they keep bees.  Our club strives to:

  • Provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and views of mutual interest to beekeepers.
  • Provide education on the practical aspects of beekeeping and encourage the use of better and more productive methods in the apiary.
  • Foster cooperation between members of the association.
  • Promote understanding and cooperation between the association and the community with regard to beekeeping.
  • Promote the use of honey and honey products.
