The New River Valley Beekeepers Association was founded in 1998 to aid local beekeepers in managing their hives through outreach, education and networking. Monthly meetings are held throughout the year to provide information and foster relationships.
Visitors and guests are welcome at meetings, held the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Montgomery County Health and Human Services Building, 210 Pepper Street St., Christiansburg, VA. A picnic is held in July instead of a meeting, and no meeting is held in December.
Members of the NRVBA have access to the Association’s honey extractors, and other tools/materials.
Have a question or a beekeeping issue? Contact one of our officers for help.
