Film examines Colony Collapse Disorder
The Beacon Sloop Club winter lecture series begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21, with a free screening of the 2012 Swiss documentary, More Than Honey, followed by a panel discussion.
The film investigates the global phenomenon of Colony Collapse Disorder, in which bees leave their hives and don’t return, and features exquisite macro-photography of bees in flight and in their hives. The follow-up discussion will be led by beekeeper Ralph Szur, who has been raising honeybees in the Hudson Valley for more than 20 years.
