Radnor Memorial Library, located in Wayne, PA, will host a screening of The Vanishing of the Bees on Wednesday, July 30 at 7pm. All are invited and admission is free.
This 87 minute documentary was an official selection of the International Wildlife Film Festival, a few years ago. The film 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.
Graham oversees the 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 screening is presented by Radnor Memorial Library, Radnor Conservancy, Radnor Bird Town, and Radnor Township’s EAC. Refreshments will be served. The Library is located at 114 West Wayne Avenue, Wayne, Pennsylvania. Contact: Pam Sedor, 610-687-1124 x62.
