Trending Topics: Plight of the Bumble Bee


LWVMC takes a look at "The Plight of the Bees" as its Trending Topic of the month.  Ling Tan, a member of Safe Grow Montgomery, will speak on why so many bees are dying and what we can do about it.  The threat to bees also becomes a threat to our food supply. Safe Grow Montgomery was one of the organizations active in getting the county to pass the recently enacted law regulating pesticide use on lawns (the Healthy Lawns Act, county bill 52-14).  Come to the newly renovated Twinbrook Library to "get the buzz". 

Another resource on this topic is the website of Smart on Pesticides. The state LWV testified both last year and this year in favor of the Pollinator Protection Act.    See our flyer here.
