Los Angeles area Beekeeper opportunities - Volunteer Beekeepers

All of our beekeepers are volunteers, and we always need more help. Beekeepers maintain hives at a school locations, and sometimes on nonprofit campuses. When you bee-keep with us, you're a volunteer teacher, too! All of your trips to the hive as a volunteer will be open to teachers, staff, and community members.
