Rock County Beekeepers Association encourages and promotes educational programs by sharing knowledge among its members and prospective beekeepers. We have been proudly serving Rock County since April 1928.
Monthly meetings are generally held on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 1:30PM. Meetings include specialized topics and pertinent information regarding the stages of beekeeping. We have club hives to allow members a more hands on approach when learning beekeeping.

The Rock County Beekeepers Association has club hives that are maintained for education and observation at our club meetings and throughout the year. We promote educational programs aimed at public acceptance of the honeybee in our environment and provide community awareness through participation in the Wisconsin State Fair, the Rock County Fair, and Rotary Botanical Gardens. We host forums and seminars and give presentations to schools and 4-H groups
Liz was well known in the beekeeping community. The Rock County Beekeepers was her "home base" and she and her husband remained active as long as they could. Liz maintained 400-500 hives by herself, though in recent years, only five.
She carved amazing wax sculptures that graduated to the American Beekeeping Federation convention where they ultimately sold for $7,000 to $10,000 each. The governor of Wisconsin, as well as President George W. Bush were given beeswax eagles.
