Generating a Buzz: Raising Awareness About our Endangered Honeybees
Friday, November 09, 2012, 05:30pm - 09:00pm

Did you know that over 30% of our honeybees die every year? A third of all food crops we consume are pollinated by bees. These beloved, humble creatures have been working for centuries to serve us. Lean how it is now our turn to go work for them. Come to the museum for an evening that will bring awareness to our community and teach you how to make the environment a healthy place for honeybees starting right in your own backyard. Join us for the screening of Vanishing of the Bees, the 2009 documentary film that centers around the sudden disappearance of honeybees from beehives around the world. The film will be followed by a Q&A with local beekeepers, including Ian Coulson of the Santa Cruz Beekeeping Guild, who will further share his expertise in beekeeping and an observation hive. Tips on how to create a honeybee friendly environment will also be made available, as well as a demonstration by Wax Works West on encaustic arts with a chance for you to participate. Sponsored by Mountain Feed and Farm Supply and Wax Works West.
Location : MAH 705 Front Street, Santa Cruz, CA, United States, 95060

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
