"Let's Talk Bees" Lecture & Panel Discussion

  • Seafarers & International House 123 E 15th St New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

New York City Beekeepers Association's monthly meeting features former Peace Corps volunteer Ivan K. Landers sweet-talking about his time in Paraguay amongst the Guarani, where he tamed wild hives and harvested honey in the middle of the jungle. 

A panel discussion follows with Landers and two additional presenters: Anthony "Tony Bees" Planakis, the recently retired NYPD detective and go-to beekeeper for swarm captures in New York City, and Gretchen Heine, the founder of Pollinator Planet, a nonprofit organization founded to help the survival of bees and other vital pollinators.
