Save Our Pollinators – A Virtual Event in Niagara for the Need to Save Our Bees!

An Invite from the Niagara District Council of Women

Posted September 8th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

We need these bees, badly, to help produce our food. Or we are in even bigger trouble than we are in now.

A  Foreword by Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper –

How great it is that the Niagara District Council of Women – one of the longest-lasting public interest and advocacy groups in this region, and one of its equally great leaders, Gracia Janes – is hosting this virtual meeting for all of us on the need to save our pollinators.

And how great that the NDCW is doing this virtually, during a time when so much attention has so understandably  been paid to the COVID-19 health crisis all around us.

Too many pressing issues that we need to be addressing, for the sake of our future, right now – issues like the climate emergency, the toxic algae blooms and plastics choking our Great Lakes, and the continued threat to populations of pollinating bees by chemical sprays used by farmers who should be just as concerned about the loss of these pollinators – are tragically been pushed to the side or are not receiving the attention they deserve because of the pandemic.

So kudos again to the Niagara District Council of Women for focusing on a topic that, quite frankly, one would think that tender-fruit growers, or grape growers or other farmers in our greater Niagara region would raise more public awareness about.

Shame on too many of them and the organizations that represent them for not doing so.

Now here is the information from the Niagara District Council of Women on the upcoming Wednesday, September 16th,  7:30 P.M. event on this issue that you can be part of in the safety of your own home –

Please join us on Wednesday September 16th   7:30 p.m. for a  (ZOOM) Public Meeting – PROMOTING POLLINATORS

Why does it matter?

How can citizens and institutions promote bee  diversity locally?
