SPEAKERS RAISING AWARENESS ON ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
April 27, 2017 – THE CRISIS FACING HONEYBEES AND OTHER POLLINATORS: What Every Citizen Needs to KnowPreston Peck is Policy Director of Toxic Free NC, a statewide nonprofit, founded in 1986, that is based in Raleigh. Pollinators are responsible for helping 80% of the world’s flowering plants reproduce, including one-third of all agricultural crops. They provide food both for us and for wildlife. Yet, they are declining at an alarming rate – 44.1% last year. Preston will show the 2016 national tour documentary Keep the Hives Alive, discuss pollinator protection efforts in NC — including bill HB 363 introduced last month in the NC legislature, and have a community discussion about what else should be done. Join us. Refreshments will be served.
