Dr. Tom Seeley: How a honey bee swarm chooses it home.
March 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The bees in a swarm make their choice of their new dwelling place collectively and democratically. They stake their future on a process that includes collective fact-finding, vigorous debate, and consensus building. We will look at how these bees evaluate potential nest sites, advertise their discoveries to one another, engage in open deliberation, and choose their new home. Finally, we will review “The Five Habits of Highly Effective Groups” that are found in honey bee swarms and that can be adopted by human groups to achieve greater collective intelligence.
- Parking inside El Rio Mobile Home Park is prohibited.
- Use the Lenz Arts lot, but avoid the ivy wall/gate with “no parking” signs for after-hours staff access.
- Metered street parking is available.
