The worldwide collapse of bee populations is a big deal, and it’s particularly serious here in California. We rely on bees to pollinate a huge percentage of our food crops, worth nearly $12 billion a year, so they’re a big contributor to the state’s economy. But our native bees face many threats, including pesticides, diseases, and even invasive bees. (Remember the murder hornets?)
We think bees deserve some protection, as well as a celebration for all they do! So our upcoming MOSAC Nights is all about bees — what they provide for us, and how we can help them survive and thrive.
