“Friends of the Earth,” an organization promoting global conservation, was founded in 1969 by David Brower (1914-2000). He created the group after leaving the Sierra Club, for which he served as Executive Director from 1952 to 1969. Brower, who had a long career as an activist, is considered one of the nation’s most important naturalists.
