August 25 in Berkeley: "A Walk in the Park with David Vassar"

A Walk in the Park with David Vassar

Reception hosted by Restore Hetch Hetchy

Join us for "A Walk in The Park with David Vassar". This is a rare opportunity to hear perspectives from David's 40 years of making films in national parks. 

If you haven't heard David Vassar speak, you are in for a treat. He's funny, he's smart, and he has stories to tell.

The presentation and reception are in downtown Berkeley. In case you have not been there, the Brower Center is a nice, intimate venue. There is parking nearby and it is very close to Downtown Berkeley BART.

And please also stay for Restore Hetch Hetchy's reception on the Brower Center's terrace with David afterward. Meet David and chat with Restore Hetch Hetchy board members as well.
