LOCATION: Portland Farmer's Market @ PSU - Swarm Portland Tent on SW Hall St. TIME: Swarm Portland starts @ 9:30 AM Bikes for Bees Ride @ 10:00 AM BEE DIE IN @ 11:00 AM in South Park Blocks COME IN COSTUME - OR WEAR BLACK/YELLOW AND WE CAN COSTUME YOU! Join us on National Bee Day as we swarm for the honey bees. Honey bee colonies worldwide are dying off as a direct result of our dependence on toxic chemicals and industrial agriculture. Oregon is at the forefront in combating corporate interests that are toxic to humans and honey bees through movements such as The Right To Know and Beyond Toxics. In collaboration with these organizations and bees we will swarm to protect the rights and lives of the global pollinators. The ride will start at the Swarm Portland Event at the Portland Farmer's Market and after a swarm around downtown, will return for a street theater bee die off. Bring your bee costume! http://www.facebook.com/events/1605622449664117/
