Passing along some sad news I just received from LA City Public Works Commissioner Paula Daniels:

“Dorothy Green passed away today, in the pre-dawn hours. Her spirit is now among us in the light on the water, and in all the good work you do every day. Memorial services will be held Thursday October 16 at 2 pm, at Mt Sinai Hollywood Hills, 5950 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Dorothy’s honor to one of the organizations she founded: the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN); the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers Watershed Council, and Heal the Bay. Her most recent efforts were focused on C-WIN.”

LA Creek Freak has covered some of recent work of Dorothy Green (1929-2008): her great new book, a recent interview and editorial. She’s been a long time activist; a stalwart for local and regional environmental and water issues.
