If he does not answer please leave a message, including your name and phone number, so that he can get back to you.
This month’s meeting will feature an airing of the acclaimed documentary, “More Than Honey”. Although it focuses on the CCD phenomena that is less prevalent than it was several years ago, the historical significance of the movie as a wake up call is undisputed. We could use another wake up call about the current challenges that pollinators face, that are well documented by the onslaught of peer reviewed research implicating the neonicotinoid class of systemic pesticides as a key factor in the unsustainable pollinator losses that we are all acutely aware of.
