Human Dimensions of Colony Collapse Disorder and Its Impact on Honey Bees

Timothy Lawrence, WSU Extension Director in Island County, will provide insights about our relationship with bees and solutions to the devastating Colony Collapse Disorder. 
European honeybees pollinate about a third of all the crops we eat, from almonds to the alfalfa that cattle eat. Colony collapse disorder is a recent and devastating syndrome in which all the worker bees simply disappear and the colony fails.  Tim was a commercial beekeeper for more than 20 years and has an adjunct appointment to the Entomology Department and Honey Bee Health Program at Washington State University.  The presentation is at 7 p.m., Wed, April 20th at the Camano Multipurpose Center, 141 East Camano Drive.

This presentation is part of a public education series hosted the third Wednesday of the month by the Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks as part of the Island County watershed project.  For information about Camano's wildlife project, visit , call 387-2236, or email
