Encore for Vanishing of the Bees film at Magic Lantern

Bees are an important part of our ecosystem, providing not just nourishing honey but much of the pollinating activity for our plants and flowers.  (Paul K. Haeder / Down to Earth NW Correspondent)

NATURE – Back by popular demand, a 90-minute film, Vanishing of the Bees, will be shown again on Wednesday, 7 p.m., at the Magic Lantern Theatre, 25 W. Main.

For a suggested donation of $5, visitors also will have pre-show access to booths featuring local beekeeping groups, information packet, seeds to plant for your backyard pollinators and organic honey treats.

About a third of the food we eat – including apples, broccoli, watermelon, cherries and other fruits and vegetables – need honeybees for pollination.
