Liberty Hyde Bailey Lecture: The Buzz About Bees

Friday, June 8, 2018 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Call Auditorium, Kennedy Hall

Pollinators contribute to about a third of our nation’s food supply, but their populations are dwindling. Join us as Cornell experts discuss the causes of this decline, what can be done to prevent it, and how the university is working to ensure the health of bees across the country, including those kept by the growing ranks of amateur beekeepers. In addition, hear from a student entrepreneur who has developed an innovative way to better monitor bee hive activity.
