April 22 is Earth Day!  No matter how we each choose to protect Planet Earth, we can all make a difference in the fight against climate change and environmental degradation.  Now more than ever, we need a healthy Planet Earth to thrive, and Planet Earth needs us.  Come and join us in celebrating and protecting Planet Earth, as we watch a documentary film about pollinators.

Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food.  They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce.  The film shows a journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honeybees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts, and vegetables we all eat.  Through this film, we will learn the challenges facing pollinators in today's world, such as habitat loss, pesticide exposure, climate change, and diseases.  We’ll also explore the critical role pollinators play in the reproduction of flowering plants and the production of food crops.  We will gain a deeper understanding of the threats that jeopardize pollinator populations and the consequences for ecosystems and food security, raise our awareness about the importance of pollinators.  As we acknowledge the vital role of pollinators in sustaining life on Earth, we’ll also consider the meaningful steps towards their protection and conservation.  

Earth Day is a reminder that we all have a responsibility to care for our planet.
