I've been involved in the David Brower Center from the time when it was merely an idea in the minds of some of David Brower's closest friends and colleagues. I learned about it at David's memorial service and helped in the early stages of organizing and fundraising to lay the groundwork for the Center. Since then, I have continued to support the Center as a donor -- and I have participated in a great many events held there. The David Brower Center has become a cultural centerpiece for Berkeley and a magnet for environmental activism for California and the West. It's a brilliant testament to the continuing impact of David Brower's legacy.

I am a member of the staff at the Center for Ecoliteracy. We have been located at the David Brower Center since its opening, and consider ourselves very fortunate. We appreciate the potential for collaborations in a site shared with dozens of like-minded organizations. The LEED Platinum building is a visible affirmation of our commitment to sustainable living, and we are proud to show off the building and our offices to visitors and participants in the conferences we offer at the Brower Center. The excellent downtown Berkeley location, close to public transportation and the University of California, helps us attract potential partners for our projects. Brower Center celebrations and public events are added bonuses.
