Local Experts to Join Ryerson Woods Global Bee Crisis Discussion -BYLN- Friends of Ryerson Woods Submission


Beekeepers around the United States and the world are reporting an incredible loss of honey bees to a phenomenon called "Colony Collapse Disorder" that threatens the entire agricultural system.

On Thursday, Jan. 19, Friends of Ryerson Woods will delve into the world of honeybees with a screening of the acclaimed film "Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?" and a discussion with local experts.

The program is from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Welcome Center at Ryerson Woods, on Riverwoods Road, between Half Day Road (Route 22) and Deerfield Road near Deerfield. The cost is $10 ($5 for Friends of Ryerson Woods members). To register, call (847) 968-3343 or visit www.ryersonwoods.org.

A profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of "The Real Dirt on Farmer John," this film investigates the long-term causes behind the global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, commercial beekeepers, scientists and philosophers.

They examine the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysteries of the beehive.
