Member Registration

Any individual or group that supports the purposes of the NBSBC may become a member, as we welcome anyone who has an interest in native bee conservation in British Columbia.

Benefits of Membership:

  • Members will receive notice of Society meetings;

  • Members are entitled to vote on Society matters;

  • Members can join and contribute to specialist groups and subcommittees of the Society, such as our Outreach and Education team and Native Bee Study Group;

  • Members will receive our newsletter The Quarterly Buzz with pertinent information on work being conducted to protect and promote native bee conservation in British Columbia.

In 2023, NBSBC became an affiliate member of BC Nature, joining a growing community of over 50 local nature clubs working across the Province to protect biodiversity and lead stewardship and education initiatives. As well as all the NBSBC member benefits listed above, this collaboration automatically allows our members access to all BC Nature activities and voting rights, student awards, as well as the quarterly BC Nature magazine, either digitally (free) or a mailed paper version ($5 additional fee annually).  See the full announcement here. 

Membership Fees paid from October 1st onwards do not expire until the end of the following calendar year!

2023 Membership fees are $25/year for regular members and $12.50 for student members who are currently enrolled in a recognized post-secondary educational institution or intend to return to that institution at a discounted rate.

Youth membership is free. 

NEW!

At our AGM on November 20, 2023, the NBSBC Board will be asking members to vote on a proposed fee increase. This is our first fee increase since our founding in 2019 and is necessitated by the rising costs of communications, insurance, administration etc.

The proposed increase would see Regular membership rise to $30 and Student membership to $18. Youth memberships would continue to be offered for free. As always, we don't want finances to be a barrier to anyone joining our society. Email bcnativebees@gmail.com with the subject line "Free Membership" to be added to our member list.
