Public Engagement + Sierra Club monthly film series

This award winning documentary explores the phenomenon known as “colony colapase disorder.” Over the past 15 years, numerous colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world, but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet.

Discussion led by Portland Protectors to follow the film. Portland Protectors will speak on the city ordinance to ban pesticides in Portland. The Portland Protectors are Maine citizens working to end the use & sale of lawn pesticides to help protect kids, pets, bees and Casco Bay.

The film is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact us at maine.chapter@sierraclub.o rg or call 207-761-5616.

Sponsored by Sierra Club Maine and MECA Public Engagement.
