Join Meaningful Movies on Monday, June 10 at 6:30 PM in the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sanctuary as we celebrate National Pollinator Week with our screening of "Keep the Hives Alive!" Bees and other pollinators are declining at an alarming rate and an overwhelming number of scientific studies link these population declines to pesticide use. Unfortunately, uses of toxic pesticides are having far-reaching impacts on a wide range of environments – everything from urban parks, to croplands, to beeyards and aquatic ecosystems. Beekeepers, farmers, and consumers all need a healthier environment for bees! Honey bees and native pollinators are essential to our food supply and help to provide one in every three bites of food we eat. Come learn more about the causes of pollinator declines and how we all can work together to protect and create healthier habitats for our pollinators.
