Oregon State Beekeepers Association

The Oregon State Beekeepers Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the well-being of honey bees and to the fields of beekeeping, apiculture, research, and education. Their stated purpose is to unite the beekeepers of Oregon in an effort to improve beekeeping in the state.

Oregon State University Honey Bee Lab

OSU's Honey Bee Research and Extension program focuses on honey bee health, nutrition, and pollination with a goal of servicing commercial beekeepers, backyard beekeepers, producers, and all citizens that are interested in bees.

The Oregon Bee Project

The Oregon Bee Project is a cooperative effort between the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA), the Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service, the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF), and a diverse set of stakeholders who are actively engaged in caring for our bees. Together these collaborators and supporters are launching several initiatives to maintain and enhance bee health in Oregon.

The Oregon Bee Project's mission is “bringing together Oregonians around a science-based strategy for protecting and promoting wild and managed bees through education, pollinator-friendly practices, and research.”
