Meeting Schedule

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.

2018 Upcoming Meeting Dates:

 

Monday, October 1st: 7pm-9pm

Monday – October 1st, 7pm-9pm

Barton Springs Nursery is gathering a set of bee forage plants to be auctioned off at our October 1 meeting of the Travis County Beekeepers Association. There will be approximately 20 plants in the grouping. Fall is a great time to plant to get great root growth before the heat of the following summer becomes too intense. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to add bee/pollinator forage to your landscape while also helping support TCBA and our Youth Program!

We will check in on the current Hive status(es) for our region, as well as answer your questions regarding your specific situation(s).

*Special Guest Speaker: Kim Lehman

Parking is free if you are coming to the beekeeper’s meeting.
