Event Details

Please join us for a screening of the award-winning film More Than Honey by Swiss filmmaker Markus Imhoof. 

More Than Honey examines the mysterious decline of honeybee colonies around the world in the last 15 years--commonly known as colony collapse disorder. With breathtaking footage, the film documents the life of bees and gives you a rare peak into the hive. Honeybees appeared on earth 60 million years before man and are essential to man’s survival--they pollinate over 80% of our plant species. No one is certain about the cause of the decline although most scientists agree is probably a combination of factors, including pesticides, parasites, stress and more.

Wagner Free Institute of Science

Founded in 1855, the Wagner Free Institute of Science is dedicated to providing free public education in science.  Its programs include free courses and lectures, field trips and lessons for children and museum tours for all ages. The evening science courses are in their 159th year, making them the oldest program devoted to free adult education in the United States. 

The Institute’s Museum houses more than 100,000 natural history specimens, a collection begun by founder William Wagner in the early nineteenth century and expanded by the pre-eminent scientist Joseph Leidy in the 1880s. Completed in 1865, the Institute’s National Historic Landmark building is essentially unchanged since the late-nineteenth century and includes a Victorian Exhibition Hall filled with fossils, shells, minerals and mounted animal skeletons and skins displayed in original wood and glass cabinets. The Museum is open to visitors Tuesdays - Fridays, 9 AM to 4 PM, year-round. Evening and weekend programs are offered during the fall, winter and spring.
