The San Francisco Green Film Festival and the San Francisco Public Library present a film that deals with the dilemma of economic growth versus species preservation.

San Bruno Mountain is the largest intact fragment of wild San Francisco. For fifty years, many people have fought to protect the mountain and its rare butterflies. The fight resulted in a significant change to the federal policy on endangered species, and in the process, turned allies into enemies. Told with humor and insight from those involved with the battles, this is a tale of right vs right. It is also a story about the rights of nature and the rights of people, one of compromise and commitment, and one about the difficult choices we all have to make.

Join us for a film preview of Butterflies and Bulldozers and a discussion with Steve Dunsky, producer and Ann Dunsky, the  director following the film.

This is a Stegner Environmental Center and Green Stacks Program.

This is a Green Stacks event sponsored by the San Francisco Department of the Environment.
