Join Los Angeles Public Library for the Tangled Bank Studio/HHMI Documentary Film Screening of My Garden of a Thousand Bees. Taking refuge from the pandemic a wildlife filmmaker sets out to film over 60 species of bee in his small garden, from giant bumblebees to scissor bees the size of a mosquito.
Following the screening, we will be joined by TEDx speaker and National Geographic Explorer, Krystle Hickman, to learn about native bees, their relationships with native plants, and community science engagement. Through macro photography, get to know more about these important pollinators, what makes them so special, and signs of a healthy garden.
**First 100 attendees/families at the event will receive a special deck of Native Bees of Western U.S. Flashcards, created by Krystle Hickman.
**All attendees of the screening event will receive a pack of native pollinator garden seeds, courtesy of HHMI.
