The Marion County Beekeepers Association in Fairmont WV, strives to educate members and create a thriving community. The community wishes to spread the love for bees and will help new members learn about how to care and nurture there own hives by offering a course available to all members of the association. There are also one-on-one mentors that you can contact and seek additional help as well. We want all members to feel part of our community.

We also participate in state competitions and meet with state legislation to lobby for better resources for beekeepers all over the state and have participated in these activities for many years.

We have around 20 events annually varying from educational meetings, state competitions, dinner meetings, and much more. We hope to see you soon and 'bee'come a new bee enthusiast like all of us at the Marion County Beekeepers Association.
