	David Brower’s kinship with the wilderness probably began in 1918 when he made his first trip to Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  Back then I-80 was a one-lane dirt road and it took him four days to make the trip, camping along the way.  A proposed dam of Dinosaur Canyon in 1952 turned him into an environmental activist after he saw a 16 mm movie of a family’s trip down the  picturesque canyon.  He went on to be the Sierra Club’s first executive director in 1952 and oversaw the growth of the club’s membership from 2,000 to 77,000.  In 1969 he founded the League of Conservation Voters as well as the Friends of the Earth, now multi-national and operating in sixty-three countries.  The three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee has had a profound impact on the state of America’s wild lands by helping to create national parks and seashores in Kings Canyon, the North Cascades, the Redwoods, Great Basin, Alaska, Cape Cod, Fire Island and Point Reyes.  He played a major role in keeping dams out of Dinosaur National Monument, the Yukon and the Grand Canyon and in establishing the National Wilderness Preservation System.  David Brower currently serves as the Chairman of the Earth Island Institute and is probably the most well recognized figure in the environmental movement.
