The Bees of Grand Staircase – Escalante

May 20, 2021

At a time when we need to learn everything we can about bees to protect them, the lands where they are most abundant are suddenly being threatened. The Bees of Grand Staircase-Escalante is a research and documentary film project that follows two of North America’s most prominent bee researchers as they return to their backcountry stomping grounds in southern Utah. Twenty years ago they showed us what an incredible hot spot for bee diversity this place is. Now, they follow up on that work as the protections for these lands are being stripped away.

Organise your fiends on a virtual table, for this special viewing that also includes:

  • Message from the Governor General
  • Interview conducted by Associate Professor Dr. Kevin Thiele with film maker Matt Kelly and Dr Peter Raven.
