"What Can We Do to Save the Bees" has been cancelled

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

"What Can We Do to Save the Bees” speaker program is being held on Wednesday, March 6th, 2019, beginning at 7:30 pm at the Royal Oak Middle School (709 N. Washington). We have lost 75% or our insect Bio Mass over the last 50 years. Some of the questions we should ask are: Should I plant a tree? What is the status of all our native pollinators? Are honey bees part of the answer? Rich Wieske is co-owner of Green Toe Gardens. Green Toe Gardens tends hives throughout Detroit, pollinating our local farms and gardens. They also maintain the observation hives at Belle Isle, Edsel and Eleanor Ford bee yards and the Metropolitan Airport Authority bee hives at Cross Winds Marsh. Rich is a bee advocate and mentor on what’s happening to our bees. Join Rich Wieske as he tells us what we can do about saving them. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about honey bees this evening is the place to bee. There is no preregistration or cost for this program.
