Saturday December 02, 2000

The public is invited to join Earth Island Institute, the Brower family, and the City of Berkeley for a David Brower Memorial Celebration from 2 to 4 p.m today at the Berkeley Community Theater, 1930 Allston Way. 

The afternoon will feature speakers, music, poetry, video, and photography in the theatre, followed by time in the adjacent East Gallery for people to exchange reminiscences while perusing memorabilia from Dave’s long, varied, and active life. Since we will not be able to hear from all of those with great Dave stories to tell in the theatre,we plan to videotape brief remembrances of Dave in the West Gallery, so bring your own stories along.  

The institute is continuing to collect many remarkable “Dave stories,” and welcomes more. Clippings from press coverage of Dave's life, as well as photos and other Dave memorabilia would be appreciated. E-mails concerning Dave Brower archival material, can be sent to Mikhail Davis at, Send mail to:
