Honey Information
















The Sandusky River Valley Beekeepers Association is open to anyone that is involved in beekeeping or is interested in learning more about the honey bee.. It's members are a mixture of commercial and hobby beekeepers, and individuals wishing to stay informed. Members do not need to own a bee hive.  As you probably know the number of honey bee hives and beekeepers are decreasing each year for a variety of  reasons.  Our purpose as an organization is to promote the honey bee, foster communication between  beekeepers and educate people about the plight of the honey bee.  We offer programs in Huron, Erie, Sandusky and Seneca Counties to students and groups who have an interest in learning about honey bees.  Whether you're a "New-Bee" or you tend several hundred hives, the Sandusky River Valley Beekeeping Association is the place to Bee!



























































We meet at the First United Methodist Church, 510 W. Maple St. (across from Miller Super Value) in Clyde, Ohio
