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.
