Bees are amazing — and not just honeybees, which were brought to the United States from Europe and Asia centuries ago. The United States is home to about 3,600 species of native bees, with 660 of these species calling Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument home. Join us Thursday, Nov. 12, for an exclusive screening of the new film The Bees of Grand Staircase-Escalante to learn more about these amazing creatures and why we must protect this monument.
We'll watch the 20-minute film online together and then have a discussion with filmmaker Matt Kelly from the Bee Report as well as our senior public lands campaigner Taylor McKinnon and Environmental Health director Lori Ann Burd.
Native bees and national monuments have both been subject to unprecedented threats in recent times. We'll explore our campaigns to protect both and how you can get involved.
The 75-minute webinar starts at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET. You have to register to join, so sign up and check your email for a link.
