Who are your SF Bay environmental heroes? Let us know in your comments below.
Deadly smog, piles of burning garbage, no recycling – on the first Earth Day in 1970, the Bay Area looked vastly different than it does today. But much of the progress since then is thanks to a small, but dedicated group of everyday Bay Area residents who decided it was time for a change. This Earth Day, QUEST meets the local environmental heroes who preserved the Bay Area’s water, air and open space for generations to come, and looks ahead to the environmental challenges that are yet to be solved.
In celebration of Earth Day, join us for a first-ever web premiere of a KQED broadcast show, the 30-minute QUEST documentary Earth Day Special: Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Headed (episode #107), in its entirety.
This story will air for television on QUEST Tuesday, Apr 17 at 7:30pm on KQED 9, and KQED HD, Comcast 709. (full schedule)
Josh Rosen is Series Producer for QUEST on KQED Television.
