Our Purpose

The Anne Arundel Beekeepers Association's purpose is to promote beekeeping in the county; provide a reliable source of information to beekeepers and the public regarding bees, beekeeping, and bee management; provide contact information about providers of bee related services, supplies, and products.

We've been teaching Beekeepers and caring for Honey Bees in Anne Arundel County, MD since 1964. For AABA's complete history, click here.
