  1. Excerpted from the October 2003 Issue of the San Francisco Bay Chapter news letter The "Yodeler":

    The Hannah Creighton Environmental Justice Award will be presented to Marilyn Price founder and
    director of Trips for Kids, a national non-profit organization that provides bicycle-oriented
    programs for disadvantaged youth. Trips for kids enriches the lives of these young people
    through access to the natural world, environmental awareness, and building self-esteem. Trips
    for Kids began in 1988 as a local Marin project partly sponsored by the Sierra Club's Inner City
    Outings, but 1999 it became independent of the club. It has served over 14,000 youth.

    Just another of the Sierra Club's gaffes. A while back they embarrassed themselves by unwittingly
    co-sponsoring some misguided trail work.

    I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to humans ("pure habitat"). Want to
    help? (I spent the previous 8 years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)
