Event Details

Join Green Foothills’ Executive Director Megan Fluke and legendary environmental activist Lennie Roberts for an online event as they discuss how we all can be advocates and protect our natural open spaces. Learn how people and grassroots actions can create a positive impact on our environment.

Lennie Roberts, a legislative advocate with Green Foothills for more than 40 years, helped found the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District in 1972 and later advanced its expansion into San Mateo County and to the coast. She was the author and co-sponsor of Measure A, the Coastside Protection Initiative, and co-led a campaign for the passage of Measure T, resulting in the construction of the Devil’s Slide tunnel instead of an environmentally destructive, growth-inducing freeway bypass. Roberts graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. in art.

Megan Fluke joined Green Foothills as executive director in November 2013. In her role, she develops and implements the organization’s strategic goals and manages its operations. She won the Greenbelt Alliance Champion Award in 2017, and is a tenacious environmental nonprofit executive passionate about civic engagement and the common good.
