The Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG) welcomes the public to celebrate summer on the Ossipee River with a free and educational film series every Tuesday evening in July.
The next film in the series, on July 23, will be "Vanishing of the Bees," a fascinating documentary that examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth.
Filming across the US, Europe, Australia, and Asia, Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S.
The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capitol Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees.
Films in this series are meant to build an awareness and appreciation for the natural world and inspire people to become stewards of natural resources and take action in their community. All film events will be family friendly and free, with films starting at dusk. Please plan to arrive at the Blue Heron House, 236 Huntress Bridge Rd., Effingham, NH at 7:30 p.m. for parking, seating, and raffle sign up. There will be free popcorn and fun raffles each week with prizes for attendees, and everyone is welcome to enjoy the trails and river before the films (bring a fishing pole and tackle, no swimming allowed).
