Kenneth Brower and Malcolm Margolin in Conversation: 100 Years Later – Can Hetch Hetchy Come Back?

This event has passed.

On Dec. 9, 1913, President Woodrow Wilson signed the act that allowed the City of San Francisco to clear cut, dam, and drown Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park.

Exactly a century later, join noted conservationists Ken Brower and Malcolm Margolin for a conversation on the battle that broke John Muir’s heart, the engineering marvels of the dam, and how the splendid glacial valley could flourish again.

Ken, oldest son of David Brower, is the author of books including The Starship and the Canoe, The Wildness Within, and, most recently, Hetch Hetchy: Undoing a Great California Mistake.

Margolin’s nonprofit Heyday Books has published hundreds of books on California ecology, cultures, and art. He also has authored many books, including The Ohlone Way.

Refreshments 7 PM, talk promptly at 7:30 PM, Edith Stone Room.
