About

Our Mission: 

Our mission is to promote and support responsible beekeeping practices; that benefit honeybees, beekeepers, our citizens and our environment throughout the Coastal Empire Low Country; where we live and call home.

 

Meetings:

Monday nights:   (second Monday night of the Month) at Kelly Tours

The interest in beekeeping continues to grow as a result of our annual Oatland Island Fundamentals of Beekeeping.  We invite members and visitors to come and learn more about this exciting hobby.

Our regular Monday night meetings are held at Kelly Tours. We have a social time from 6:00 – 6:30 PM for members and visitors to gather information like supply catalogs and to talk about their beekeeping.  We also serve a light food tray and coffee during this time.  After a quick review of events and opportunities for the club, we provide a teaching demonstration or a guest speaker for the evening.  All meeting activities are to close at 8 PM, but beekeepers are welcome to hang around for more questions.  Please come join us and let us help you get started!

Saturday Events on Oatland Island:

CEBA is planning several events for Saturdays.  These events will combine classroom and bee yard activities.  Oatland Island Wildlife Center is now considered our home base, giving us access to classrooms and biology labs.

Meetings and Events will be posted on our calendar page.
