There is a new bee association in the state of Pennsylvania called the "Pennsylvania Backyard Beekeepers Association". It is a state wide association open to all beekeepers. The association is home-based in Pennsylvania, but beekeepers in the surrounding region are encouraged to join. It is structured for the backyard beekeeper with support and educational high quality social events.

This is a new website and association. We are still in "working" stages, starting at the ground floor and building up. So we encourage membership and want to hear of ideas, suggestions, comments, and from those willing to get involved in a worthwhile program.
