My Garden of a Thousand Bees – Film Screening
6:30 p.m. Aug. 12 (in person)
In “My Garden of a Thousand Bees,” a veteran wildlife cameraman seeking refuge from the pandemic films the wild bees that live in his city garden with mind-blowing results. By the end of the summer, he’s become bee obsessed and has developed relationships with some individuals.
There will be a brief talk after the film with Hollis Woodard, professor of entomology at UCR, and Leif Richardson, a conservation biologist who coordinates the California Bumble Bee Atlas project, about native bees.
This film has been made available free of charge as part of the lead-up to the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, which will be held at UCR Palm Desert Center on Nov. 10.
This is an in-person screening, so reservations are necessary
