Mission Statement

Portland Urban Beekeepers is a non-profit organization of beekeepers that provides community, advocacy, and education for those interested in raising honey bees and supporting their presence in the environment.

PUB is an official chapter of the Oregon State Beekeepers Association.


Monthly meetings are normally held the first Wednesday of the month from 7:00 – 9:00pm. Meeting dates and times can be found on the PUB Calendar. However, our special December Honey Tasting event will be on Thursday, December 20, 2018 at Lucky Labrador Hawthorne Brew Pub, located at:

915 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR 97214

Our meetings are open to members and non-members alike. We invite everyone to join our club and help us support the bees and beekeepers of the Portland area.

Meetings usually include: Pollen and nectar report, announcements and reports on local events or activities, Q&A sessions, and guest speakers on bee related topics such as: swarms, new beekeepers, disease prevention methods (including natural prevention), general health of bees, types of hives, and preparing the colony for different seasons.
