Butterflies & Bulldozers: David schooley, Fred smith and the fight for san bruno mountain

World Premiere For fifty years, many people have fought to protect San Bruno Mountain, a rare fragment of wild San Francisco and the largest undeveloped urban area in the country. Two men have spent most of their lives working to protect the mountain, in very different ways. The battle for this mountain led to a significant change to the Endangered Species Act and turned allies into enemies. This story is emblematic of a common divide within the conservation community. It is a tale of commitment and compromise, and a drama of right versus right. Directed and edited by Ann Dunsky. Produced and written by Steve Dunsky.

Introduced by Jeffrey Stine, Chair, Division of Medicine and Science, National Museum of American History. Discussion with filmmakers Ann Dunsky and Steve Dunsky follows screening.
