Join Brian Lacy of LIVEHONEYBEES.com at The Jack London Bar for its weekly lecture series. The topic,"Bees!"
Bee populations around the world are collapsing. Few urban folk know much if anything about bees; from what they look like, behave like or especially that 40% of our food, and 90% of the most delicious/nutritious foods are completely dependent on bees. Our Bond with Bees strives to engross the senses and mind so participants will want to know and nurture bees even more.
This PowerPoint program combines filmed clips, quizzes with prizes, lively audience participation – it fills them with the sights and sounds of bees and their magical ways that have fascinated humankind since prehistory.
We travel inside hives – see how bees:
* Cook invading hornets to save the colony.
* Dance to tell their sisters exactly where nectar, pollen - even where their new home is.
* Heat themselves to 95 degrees in mid-winter to tend more and more baby bees.
We travel around the world and though time to see how:
* Ancient cultures believed gods and bees gave life to the Earth.
* The art of honey hunting exists today in several cultures.
* Bees and honey were used as weapons in warfare.
* Bees' democratic social order were cited as cause for the colonies to revolt from England.
and much, much more!
