“THE LONG GAME: HOW ROBERT DOYLE SHAPED THE EAST BAY”—Robert Doyle has been part of Save Mount Diablo’s powerhouse since he became a founding director at age 19—but he’s best known for his work at the East Bay Regional Park District, where he started out wielding rakes, shovels, and chainsaws, and ended up raising a billion dollars and doubling the district’s size. With clever strategies and dedicated partners, he made the district the largest local park agency in the country, and helped keep the East Bay from becoming a sprawling Los Angeles.
Funding for this event is provided by Save Mount Diablo. We wish to thank the Regional Parks Foundation for their generous sponsorship of The Long Game documentary.
