Travis County Beekeepers Association is committed to educating both beekeepers and the public about the importance of honeybees. One way we do this is by curating interesting programs and hosting experienced 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!
TCBA meetings are usually held on the FIRST Monday of each month. Typically, a beekeeper lesson is offered at 7:00pm, then we may have a guest speaker, another class, or a short business meeting. Meetings are held inside the Zilker Botanical Garden Center Large Meeting room, parking is free for attendees. Please bring snacks to share when you can, thanks!
*Occasionally topics will change or be shifted in order to accommodate special guest speakers.
