Even a century after his death, John Muir’s life continues to be an inspiration for wilderness and environmental protection. To learn about Muir is to understand how one person who cares about the environment can make a difference for public values and policy. Join the California Historical Society (CHS) and the Sierra Club at a special event exploring John Muir’s life and legacy. Doug McConnell of Bay Area Backroads will open the event and set the stage for a lecture by renowned John Muir scholar Harold Wood.
The event is part of the Sierra Club’s year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act and also marks the centennial year of John Muir’s passing.
Harold Wood is a long-time John Muir scholar and wilderness activist, chair of the Sierra Club John Muir Education Team, and webmaster of the Sierra Club John Muir Exhibit website.
Admission is $5 for the general public and free for Sierra Club and CHS members. Purchase tickets online here.
