Tualatin Valley Beekeepers

TVBA is a non-profit organization that provides community, advocacy, and education for those interested in raising honey bees and supporting their presence in the environment.

Getting Involved


TVBA members meet monthly on the last Tuesday of the month at 6:00PM (social and question time until 7:00pm), when a special educational presentation begins.  (In July we have picnic and hands-on Bee Day instead of the usual meeting. ) **No meeting in December.  Meetings held online while the Covid pandemic holds sway, in normal times meetings are at at Jessie Mays Community Center in North Plains.


Annual membership in TVBA costs $20 per household and goes from January 1 through December 31.  Benefits include our monthly newsletter, access to meetings and to the Honey House, our fully-equipped honey extraction facility.
