40 years ago on May 25th, after a decade of trying to stop his beloved Stanislaus river being damned, Mark did something that blew open the hearts of people everywhere. He chained himself to the canyon floor, threw away the key and prepared to be drowned along with 9 million years worth of evolution. He put his life on the line for the river that had taught him how to be a man.
Anyone that knows Mark, knows the power of his incredible heart – a canyon of love cleaned out by the grief of losing his river. That love still flows in acts of pure service to all that see this world as sacred and are given to humanities awakening.
