November 2013 – March 2014
Colorado Mountain College Sustainability Students and Faculty invite you to attend their Fall 2013 Gathering
About the film
Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet. Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, cherries, and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. The film follows beekeepers as they work together to find a solution that will save the bees.
Thursday, November 14 at 7:00 pm in the Finkel Auditorium of Breckenridge’s campus
The screening of the important 2009 documentary, Vanishing of the Bees, will be followed by a demonstration and discussion of local bee issues led by Summit County ‘bee wrangler’ Larry Gilliland.
This Sustainability Gathering is free and open to CMC staff, faculty, and students.

Chuck Dayton a retired environmental lawyer sailed across the central Pacific Ocean this summer, visiting islands we dream of as paradise, only to be hit hard with the realization that we are one of the last generations who will experience the Earth as we now know it. Come listen to Chuck Dayton speak of his travels and discoveries of this precious ecosystem.
When acclaimed author Deni Béchard first learned of the last living bonobos—great apes that are, alongside the chimpanzee, our closest relatives in the animal kingdom—he was astonished. How could the world accept the extinction of this majestic species, along with the rainforest they call home?
As he looked more closely, Béchard discovered that one relatively small NGO, the Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI), has done more to save bonobos and their natural habitat than any number of far larger organizations. Based on extensive travels in the Congo and Rwanda, and hundreds of hours of interviews with conservationists all over the world, this book explores how BCI has been so successful, offering in the process a truly postcolonial model of conservation.
For a quick explanation of Deni’s account and point of view, check out this short video:
