Puget Sound Beekeepers Association is committed to educating both beekeepers and the public about honey bees. One way we do this is by curating interesting and renowned speakers for our meetings. All meetings are free and open to the public. We hope you enjoy this year’s schedule of speakers and topics!
PSBA meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month, excluding July, November, and December. Typically, a beekeeper lesson is offered at 6:30pm and main presentation starts at 7:30pm.
Meetings are at the Graham Visitors Center at the Washington Park Arboretum.
Here are details for the meeting – no registration needed:

7:30 Main Meeting Presenter:
Eric Mussen, PhD Entomology and Extension Apiarist of the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology. We were lucky to secure Eric as a speaker this season as he is retiring from his post in June, after joining UC Davis in 1976! Musssen writes a bimonthly newsletter, from the UC Davis apiaries, which can be downloaded free from his website. He also writes the periodic Bee Briefs and one includes Getting Started in Beekeeping. Eric will talk about honeybee nutrition. We are sure you shouldn’t miss hearing from this influential beekeeper!
