‘Bee Movie’ helps bring awareness to pollinator week

Butterfly Pavlion hosts free movie night to spread word about critical role pollinators play in ecosystem

Posted

Butterfly Pavilion is rolling out the red carpet to celebrate National Pollinator Week with a free outdoor movie night featuring “Bee Movie,” a 2007 Golden Globe-nominated CGI-animated film was created by Jerry Seinfeld, and stars Jerry Seinfeld, Renée Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, John Goodman, Patrick Warburton, and Chris Rock.

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about the critical role they play in our ecosystem, as well as address the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations.

Presented June 21 by Rice’s Honey, the outdoor movie event also will include arts and crafts, guided nature walks, a ladybug release, giveaways and more. Local food trucks iPIE and Ba-Nom-a-Nom Nice Cream will have food for purchase.

“At the Butterfly Pavilion, we will observe this week in our signature style — by combining science, education and fun for the entire family,” Butterfly Pavilion President and CEO Patrick Tennyson said in a news release. “It is also a perfect time to raise awareness about our PACE program and the crucial research done at Butterfly Pavilion to protect invertebrate pollinators.”

Doors open at 6 p.m. and activities begin at 6:30 p.m. The movie will show at sundown. While the movie night is free, tickets will be required because space is limited. Tickets are available at Butterflies.org.

Pollinator Awareness through Conservation and Education is Butterfly Pavilion’s global initiative to increase awareness of pollinators and promote habitat and species conservation and restoration. Through a combination of conservation and education programs, PACE works to create a better world for pollinators, making a better world for all of us.
