We are located in Lorain County, Ohio. LCBA was founded in 1919 as a, non-profit organization committed to educating the public about the value of honeybees and the impact honeybees have on our world. We provide educational appearances upon request for schools and other groups. LCBA encourages and mentors beginning beekeepers through scholarship programs for students and adult education.
All general membership meetings are held the second Friday of each month unless otherwise advertised. We will notify the membership in advance of any changes to the normal. All meetings are open to the public.
