The National Geographic Society and Department of Energy and Environment are hosting an evening of short environmental films on the evening of Monday, April 18th that bring global issues into local focus. Artists, scientists, advocates, and everyday people share stories that cross boundaries and give a new voice to our planet and to our wild, wonderful city. Celebrate the earth, the Anacostia River, and the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee! Learn about the BioBlitz coming to DC in May and how to get involved.  Join the conversation in a Q&A…

Madison, Wisconsin friends: I hope that you’ll be able to join us next Saturday, April 16th at 11am for a very special showing of “A Ghost in the Making: Searching for the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee” at the Wisconsin Film Festival (Barrymore Theater). I’ll be there, along with entomologist Claudio Gratton and native plant gardener Susan Carpenter who helped me find my first living rusty-patched bumble bee at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum will be there as well.

My new film “A Ghost in the Making: Searching for the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee,” which was beautifully produced by my friends at Day’s Edge Productions is premiering today (April 10th) at the Princeton Environmental Film-festival. We are proud to have it premiere at PEFF and were thrilled to see clips from our film in this year’s trailer!
