Teaching Hives

The CJBA has educational hives maintained by members that are used for member workshops and other activities.  Each location has a primary contact that coordinates the activities and participation.  The schedule for each hive may vary due to weather, follow the instruction for the hive you are participating in to receive up-to-date information in case of cancellations or changes.   There is no fee for these workshops - but you must be a current member.
