Page 12 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • May 6, 2009 Waldwick Watch Beekeeper to speak at library Bees are a vital link in the production of food, but billions of honeybees die each year as a result of exposure to pathogens and pesticides. Organic beekeeper, Jack Daly, will present “Saving the Honeybee,” at the Waldwick Public Library on Wednesday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. The presentation will include a demonstration of one of the 13 beehives currently managed by the speaker. A native of Bergen County, Daly works as an adjunct professor in the Environmental Studies Department at Ramapo College, teaching world sustainability. In 2002, he was introduced to the beekeeping experience by Gunther Hauk, author of “Toward Saving the Honeybee.” Concerned over the drastic rise in the collapse of honeybee colonies in North America in recent years, Daly is interested in breeding a mite-resistant honeybee.
