The primary mission of the ECWBA is to educate and inform beekeepers about honey bees, beekeeping and honey bee related products.  Secondary missions include providing opportunities for beekeeper networking and community outreach programs.

Contact us or come to a meeting and we'll sign you up!  Membership in a local club is an important part of beekeeping - you can keep up with new techniques as well as GET THE BUZZ about bees and their state of being from other LOCAL keepers.

The group currently meets on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Caestecker Public Library in Green Lake.   The JUNE meeting is a FIELD DAY - open to all beekeepers and beekeeper wanna-bees.  We try to get one meeting with the Wisconsin State Bee Inspector, occasionally have guest speakers, and always talk about BEEKEEPING and what's going on with people's hives.
