Founder of the Sierra Club, the naturalist John Muir is also known for his essays and poetry in addition to his nature activism. He advocated for nature conservancy, specifically the preservation of forests in the American west. During his lifetime, he published six books and four more were published posthumously as well as several collections of essays. When he wasn't writing, he was working to establish the Yosemite National Park and preserve other wilderness areas.
And he'll be at the Library this February! (More or less). Though John Muir himself was not available, park ranger, teacher, and living history researcher and actor Tom Banks will be performing as John of the Mountains. Come hear about John Muir's life in his own words at one of the shows listed below. Feel free to bring your questions about Muir and nature conservancy!
