  1. I recall hearing David Brower speak twice. Certainly a driven (and controversial) figure who made an impact on the environmental movement. I also remember reading of his dispute with Ansel Adams during the 60s at the Sierra Club.

    Definitely, the Youth Awards capture his spirit. Have a great time.

  2. i Love Julia Lorraine Butterfly Compassionate Mama Bear Hill:) woof woof!

  3. Hi RMARG, i don’t remember hearing that Dave Brower had issue with Ansel Adams, although he certainly had issues with Sierra Club and they with him. David Brower was an amazing man who took fierce stands, made a big difference, and inspired thousands if not millions (myself included!)

  4. The dispute was over the Sierra Club position over the Diablo Canyon plant (Adams was in favor and Brower was opposed). The dispute was actually more about the purpose of the environmental movement more than the specifics of the Diablo plant. Adams complimented Brower in his autobiography despite their differences on the issue.

  5. Never knew about that part, thanks for filling me in.
