With David Theodoropoulos, conservation biologist and author. Doors open at 6 pm. Join us for a slideshow with narration, followed by discussion. Who is behind the deforestation and application of pesticides to the East Bay Hills from Richmond to Hayward? The public, wildlife, and water will be exposed to thousands of gallons of toxic herbicides and enormous environmental damage if the Fire Reduction Plan goes ahead. David Theodoropoulos will speak about invasion biology, which is based on evolutionary biology. He will also address the native plant restoration movement's connection to the pesticide industry. The discussion will inform us of best practices and alternatives to the application of pesticides.
