Event Details

Join Heyday Publisher Malcolm Margolin, author Kenneth Brower, John Muir's great-great-grandson Robert Hanna, Sierra College Professor Emeritus Joe Medeiros (now editor of the Sierra College Press), and Restore Hetch Hetchy Executive Director Spreck Rosekrans in an illustrated lecture and discussion about America's famous Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park.

Heyday has recently published Kenneth Brower's Hetch Hetchy—Undoing a Great American Mistake. One hundred years after the passage of the Raker Act (December, 1913), there is growing interest in the potential decommissioning of O'Shaughnessy Dam and the restoration of Yosemite's twin—Hetch Hetchy Valley. Can it be done? If so, how could it be done so San Franciscans and other Bay Area users can continue to receive essential water and power?

The answer is yes, it can be done! But not without the same kind of human will and ingenuity that placed this giant engineering project within the borders of California's most beloved national park. Join this group of authors, publishers and experts in this one-of-a-kind look at a dream to restore Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park.

This event is co-sponsored by Sierra College Press. All proceeds will benefit the Sierra College Natural History Museum, the Sierra College Press, and Restore Hetch-Hetchy.

Sponsored by: Natural History Museum, Sierra College Press, Restore Hetch Hetchy
