Dinner on the Bluff
Saturday, April 6th
A talk by Dr. Marla Spivak
Getting Bees Back on Their Own Six Feet

Dr. Marla Spivak, a MacArthur Fellow and McKnight Distinguished Professor in Entomology at the University of Minnesota, will be the featured speaker at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center’s Dinner on the Bluff event the evening of Saturday, April 6th.

Honey bees are one of the key pollinators of flowers, fruits and vegetables. Over the past 15 years, colonies of bees have been disappearing, and the reason remains unknown. Referred to as ‘colony collapse disorder’, billions of Honey bees across the world are leaving their hives, never to return. In some regions, up to 90% of bees have disappeared.

In her speech, "Getting Bees Back on Their Own Six Feet", Dr. Spivak will talk about the stressors that Honey bees, and our diverse native bees, are facing and describe ways we can help them survive and thrive once again.

Dr. Spivak’s speech will be accompanied by a themed three-course dinner with a portion of the ticket price supporting Eagle Bluff’s educational programming. Doors open at 5:00 pm. Guests are encouraged to bring their own adult beverage of choice.

Menu Theme: Hint of Honey

French Spring Soup, Spring Salad with Chive Blossom Vinaigrette, Honey Rack of Lamb, Honey Glazed Carrots & Leeks, Honey Roasted Baby Reds and Peach Lassi Sorbet with Crushed Blackberries

Don't miss this timely talk on the importance of bees and their impact on humans and nature!
