One in three mouthfuls of our diet is impacted by bee pollination, yet bees continue to die at an alarming rate. Nina Hale, Inc., is cohosting an educational event to help shed light on this devastating environmental issue.
“The State of The Bees” with Dr. Marla Spivak, an entomologist and honey bee expert at the University of Minnesota, will take place at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, at the Walker Art Center Cinema in Minneapolis. Concerned citizens and backyard beekeepers alike can learn about honey bees, their role in the global food supply, and the serious threats they are facing. Dr. Spivak will also provide information about what can be done to help the bees.
In 2010, Dr. Spivak was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and is currently a Distinguished McKnight Professor in Entomology at the University of Minnesota. With the help of Mr. Gary Reuter and a team of graduate students, Dr. Spivak is responsible for running the University of Minnesota Bee Lab. This is a free event, with support from the Walker Art Center, Pearson’s Candy Company, Aveda, UMN Bee Lab Supporter Jennifer Martin, Pollen, and Nina Hale, Inc.
