Green Screens: An Environmental Film Festival-More Than Honey Screening

August 1, 2015 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Chikaming Open Lands is partnering with Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve to present Green Screens: An Environmental Film Festival. Join us at Fernwood for a screening of More Than Honey, in which Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. Over the past 15 years, numerous colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world, but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. Scientists have found a name for the phenomenon that matches its scale, “colony collapse disorder,” and they have good reason to be worried: 80% of plant species require bees to be pollinated. Why is it happening?

Pre-screening Reception and Honey-Tasting: 6:30 p.m. on the Bauer Terrace
Screening at 7:30 p.m
