Online Via Zoom
The Kanza Chapter of the Sierra Club is hosting an online event titled “Struggling Bees, Systemic Pesticide Pollution, and the Health of our Communities”. 
From their website:

“Come learn about how the loss of bee colonies may be tied to the overloading and overuse of pesticides in agricultural, industrial, and urban settings and about steps to better protect pollinators in the future.

This is strictly a virtual event. Join us at 6:45 pm for a little socializing online. Program will begin at 7:00 pm.

This presentation reviews how pesticide exposure impacts our critical pollinating bees and describes how an ethanol facility improperly disposing of pesticide treated seeds has caused major environmental, ecological, and human health concerns in the Midwest.

Dr. Judy Wu-Smart is an Associate Professor & Extension Specialist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Bee Lab where she and her team have been developing a robust pollinator health program within the Great Plains region to help beekeepers, scientists, policy makers, homeowners, and land managers understand the underlying stressors challenging bee health, such as exposure to pesticides. Community engagement and promoting science literacy around these complicated farm-to-table issues are also key components of our research and extension education programs.
