The mission of the Adirondack Pollinator Project is to build understanding about the global and local importance of pollinators, and to empower people to take individual and collective action to help pollinators thrive. We will launch during National Pollinator Week, which runs from June 19 - June 25, 2017 and organize events throughout the summer.


LECTURES

Bee colonies are dying in record numbers across the globe. Why the bees are dying remains a mystery. Dr. Grozinger from Penn State's Center for Pollinator Research will give lectures on the "Global Pollinator Crisis" to help us get a better understanding of the situation, and learn to make a difference in the Adirondacks. 


Lectures by Dr. Christina Grozinger, Director of the Center for Pollinator Research aPenn State University.

July 19th @ The Wild Center in Tupper Lake. Reception at 6 PM, lecture at 7 PM. RSVP Required. 

July 20th @ View Arts in Old Forge. Reception at 6 PM, lecture at 7 PM.

FILM SHOWINGS

Directed by Academy Award nominated director Markus Imhoof, More than Honey  tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. With the tenacity of a man out to solve a world-class mystery, he investigates this global phenomenon, from California to Switzerland, China and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis.
