The purpose of the MCBA is to promote the gentle art and science of beekeeping, primarily to sideline, homestead, hobby beekeepers, and the general public. We conduct educational programs under the Washington State Beekeepers Association Master Beekeepers Educational program, and other generally accepted beekeeping sources. Membership in MCBA is open to all persons interested in bees and beekeeping. Membership costs $15.00 for an individual and $20.00 for a family.
