The Wild Summer Conservation Film Series continues this Wednesday, July 30, 2014 @ 7pm in the Winsor Room.

Vanishing of the Bees, an 87- minute documentary, examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and Mother Earth. After the screening, Warren Graham, a third generation Pennsylvania beekeeper from Delaware County, will show some of his hives and talk with us about his life’s work.

Tomorrow, Radnor resident and our own “off and on” beekeeper, Colin Hingley, will drive to North Creek Nurseries in Oxford, PA, http://www.northcreeknurseries.com/to pick up some donated, bee-loving plants that we will be giving away on Wednesday night. Come and get your free plant!

Warren Graham

Warren Graham oversees the bee population at Red Hill Farm, Colonial Plantation at Ridley Creek State Park, Linvilla Orchards, as well as other farms in the area. Warren has traveled the world, meeting and working with beekeepers in exotic apiaries. As a member of Eastern Apicultural Society, the PA State Beekeepers Association, and the Chester County Beekeepers Association, Warren is a determined mentor of young beekeepers. He has experience as a Pennsylvania State Bee Inspector, and is an enthusiastic raconteur of early American bee craft.

This is a free film series presented by Radnor Memorial Library, Radnor Conservancy, Radnor Bird Town, and Radnor Township’s EAC.

Refreshments will be served.

See you at the Library,

Pam
