Columbia Gorge Beekeepers Learning Opportunities
Columbia Gorge Beekeepers Association offers a beginners beekeeping class to those wanting to learn more about Honey Bees or enter into the fascinating realm of beekeeping.
Columbia Gorge Beekeepers Association (CGBA) is passionate about helping to educate beekeepers and others about the importance of honey bees and other pollinators. We strive and encourage others in mentoring beekeepers, engaging in partnerships with like-minded organizations, and helping to build bridges of understanding when it comes to matters related to pollinators and sustainable practices.
Within the Gorge Region, CGBA supports the Hood River Extension Service, 4-H, Master Gardeners and Oregon Master Beekeepers Programs. Members venture into the Regions public schools in an effort to share the fascination of bees.
We also endeavor to support:
- Western Apicultural Society
- Oregon Master Beekeeper Program
- Oregon State Beekeepers Association
- Oregon State University Bee Lab
- Oregon State University Pollinator Health.
Please check this site often for new beekeeping classes and events that may be of interest to you.
