There’s a growing threat that, if we fail to act, could profoundly affect our lives. Like many species, bees and other insect pollinators are facing environmental challenges – the biggest of which is loss of native habitat – that jeopardize their very existence. At our next Policy and a Pint, we’ll talk about threats to the state’s insect population, and what could be devastating consequences for our food supply, our economy – and us. We’ll also talk about what each of us can do to slow the threat, and eventually, bring back the bees. Host Steve Seel will be joined by guests Gary Reuter from the U of M’s Bee lab, food writer Dara Moskowitz-Grumdahl from Mpls/St. Paul Magazine who’s been investigating this topic, and Joseph Zachmann from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. The bottom line: we’re the problem, but we’re also the solution. Policy and a Pint: Bringing Back the Bees, Wednesday April 30 at the Varsity Theater.

Policy and a Pint is presented by The Current and The Citizens League, with support from Target and Minnesota Credit Union Network.
