yesterday was World Environment Day

UN invites world’s seven billion people to become agents of change on World Environment Day - from United Nations News

Helped to organize a World Environment Day celebration in San Francisco in 1979 working with a dynamic woman named Isabel Wade who founded Urban Resource Systems and was the first board president of Friends of the Urban Forest.

Got the poster of the event we did off the Oakland Museum collections site - see it larger there.

Poster reads, "A celebration/ world environment day/ tuesday 5 june 79/ Embarcadero Plaza 12 noon to 1:30 pm/ Music booths speakers/ Governor Jerry Brown/ Huey Johnson (State Secretary for resources/ Tower of Power/ New Generation Singers."

With Isabel Wade on the Urban Resource Systems About URS page - board of directors - I see there also her husband Jan Chernoff and Mindelle Kirschner who I remember fondly as Mindy. 

Friends of the Urban Forest is still going. There's the link. I wonder if they still sell Zoo Doo, poop from the San Francisco Zoo - nothing came up on their site search for zoo doo or just zoo so I guess not. - dc
