Tales from the Hive ~ National Pollinator Week

In honor of National Pollinator Week, Fort Bragg Library and Bee City USA, present the NOVA film, Tales from the Hive.

Literally filmed inside a hive and out, while following bees in flight to capture closeups of honeybee behavior, this incredible cinematography masterpiece is a must see.

“Bees have been busy for millions of years now, and they’re not about to stop anytime soon…. Foragers still return from the fields with nectar…. While guard bees still watch and wait.

There’s treasure in this beekeeper’s hive, and all are sworn to protect it with their lives.” NOVA Bees: Tales from the Hive transcript.

“A hive is more than just a buzz of activity. The social organization rivals that in the best-run corporations, with each bee and each cell possessing a rigidly specific function. Have a look at the physical, behavioral, and social infrastructure inside a bees’ nest.” Anatomy of a Hive, NOVA 2000

Join us for this incredible journey of life inside the inner workings of a colony of bees, June 16, 2017 4-6 pm.
