Pilot Zoom public programming

Join us on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. for a Zoom presentation by Joe Marttila of SeaBee Honey and Apiaries. SeaBee is based in Rye with the mission to preserve both pollinators and farmland in the Seacoast area. Joe Marttila will give you a fascinating glimpse into the world of honey bees and other New England native pollinators, and explain why pollinators play such a critical role in the ecosystem.  He will also touch on why pollinators are in decline and what you can do to help. Joe will take questions by chat after his discussion.
