Alvéole

We share our urban spaces with a diverse world of inspiring pollinators who visit hundreds of blooms a day, and one in every three bites of food we eat depends on pollination by honey bees and other pollinators. Yet how much do we know about the lives of these important creatures and the realities they face? Join nature educator and beekeeper Emilie Usher as she invites us to learn more about the world inside the honey bee hive, the lives of the other important pollinators who support our food system and the role urban beekeeping can play in raising awareness.

This presentation with Q&A will take place in our Honda Pacific Visions Theater. There will be cocktails, honey tastings, and sweet tunes in our Great Hall and Pacific Visions Art Gallery following the talk. Guests will will have the opportunity to mix and mingle and take home honey pots and souvenirs! Advance registration is required. This program is best suited for high school and college students and adults of all ages.
