The nonprofit Alameda County Beekeepers Association, established in 1916, provides education, support and resources for beekeepers and the public.

  • Speakers on honeybee biology, behavior and husbandry
  • Honeybee swarm removal
  • Hands-on classes and workshops
  • Presentations to schools and organizations
  • Educational booth at the Alameda County Fair

Scheduled ACBA meetings are held at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of most months at the San Leandro Marina Community Center, 15301 Wicks Blvd, San Leandro, CA 94577. However, meetings are often held in other outdoor locations during the summer months; see the in-person meeting schedule for details.

Everyone is welcome — members and non-members alike. In addition, special guest speaker presentations are often held via Zoom on the third Tuesday of the month; check the speaker schedule for details.

If there’s a swarm of bees in your yard, call 510-898-6696 to be connected with a local beekeeper who will safely relocate them. You can find more information on our Get Help With a Swarm page.

The Alameda County Beekeepers Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit; our federal tax ID # is 94-3465679.
