Every year, migratory beekeepers transport tens of billions of bees from coast to coast in a unique annual migration that’s indispensable to the pollination of our crops and the feeding of America. From the massive almond crop in California, to apples in the Pacific Northwest, blueberries in The Carolinas, and cranberries in Massachusetts, our tireless friends are responsible for pollinating the crops that make one out of every three bites we eat possible. However, beekeepers are profoundly anxious about the alarming pace of bee losses, which now average 40 to 60 percent every year. The Pollinators takes us along on this amazing caravan, stopping along the way to talk to farmers, scientists, chefs, and academics who describe the numerous modern threats to bees, what their loss means to our food security, and how we can tackle the problem. Tom Brod of Highland Honey will introduce the film. A panel discussion with Rella Abernathy of the City of Boulder pollinator conservation programs, Sue Anderson, co-founder of People and Pollinators Action Network, Brod, and Tom Theobald, co-founder of the Boulder County Beekeepers’ Association, will follow the screening. Sponsored by Harlequin’s Gardens The Pollinators preview Preceded by: Wolf and the Bees How to Attract Pollinators to your Garden or Farm at R Gallery and The Pollinators Fair at Muenzinger Auditorium will precede this program. Parking Muenzinger Auditorium is just west of Folsom Stadium’s south end, across the plaza and through the archway.
