Join us and Friends of Five Creeks for an evening of short documentaries that highlight how individuals have made an incredible difference in their communities.

From Ron Finley, planting an artistic, urban organic garden in South Central LA’s food desert, to a few women mobilizing hundreds to protect the mission blue butterfly by saving San Bruno Mountain, to a Volunteer Firefighter saving a pair of shoes in a house fire.

In addition, Friends of Five Creeks will share their 20-year history right here in Berkeley, Albany and El Cerrito, as they restored one creek after another. Discover what it took to build their group of Weed Warriors, adopt a half dozen parks, produce a speaker series on local environmental issues and positive solutions, and build an environmental coalition of organizations to protect the bay. Potluck at 6:30, program at 7:00.
