    Bees are dying at an alarming rate, awash in a veritable deluge of deadly “neonic” pesticides unleashed by global agrichemical companies.

    Millions of acres of crops have been doused with these bee-killing chemicals, and they’re even applied to so-called “bee-friendly” plants that are sold in garden stores.

    The Obama Administration continues to drag its feet on protecting bees, so this week NRDC filed an emergency Petition with the EPA, calling for a ban on bee-killing neonics.

    Join us for a teleconference to get an up-to-the-minute report from Jennifer Sass, NRDC’s leading Senior Scientist, who’s helping lead our campaign to save America’s bees. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have -- especially for those who garden!

    Taking part in a telephone conference call is easy -- we’ll provide simple instructions for calling in. If you will be joining us, please let us know as soon as possible (but no later than Monday, July 21st) by reply email at membership@nrdc.org or by phone at 212-727-4510.
