Can verse save the Earth? The Watershed Environmental Poetry Festival's planners hope so. Activist bards reading at Civic Center Park (Center Street at Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, Berkeley) on Saturday, Oct. 2, include former US Poet Laureate Robert Hass, former California Poet Laureate Al Young, Brenda Hillman, Julia Whitty, David Meltzer, Camille Dungy, and many more. An open mic welcomes all. Noon, free.
