Cross Pollination 2011: Vanishing of the Bees

When: Wed., Aug. 24, 6 p.m. 2011

Bees scare me, so you wouldn't think I'd care that Colony Collapse Disorder is causing their rapid disappearance. But honey, I do — and you should, too — because about every third bite of food you eat comes from crops pollinated by commercial honeybees. You can learn all about this crisis in the documentary Vanishing of the Bees, at 6 tonight at Stargazers Theatre and Event Center (10 S. Parkside Drive, vanishingbees.com). Arrive early for "Bee Happy Hour" with lemonade and Bristol Brewing Co.'s Beehive beer or mead, beeswax art by FutureSelf youth artists and other bee-related activities. After the film, experts will discuss local impact and ways to take action. — Jenny Rackl
