Add to my calendar
 

Celebrate Earth Day and Spring with David Schooley, the Bay Area's lifelong campaigner for San Bruno Mountain (south of S.F.) and for saving its iconic Mission Blue butterflies and other rare animal & plant life under the Endangered Species Act. David’s evocative photography, poems & artwork will highlight the event. Equally at home painting protest banners and organizing demonstrations, or photographing Nature's treasures and writing soulful poems rich in the poetry of place, Schooley has tirelessly questioned the "development" mindset and been a principled fighter for preservation of these city-surrounded mountains of the northern San Francisco Peninsula, and much more. Info on restoration & hikes, publications & refreshments will be available.

David Schooley is the author of Nothing Need Be Said, San Bruno Mountain Book of Poems and Ravines of the Heart, Poems, Drawings, Essays.

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