There are more schools, parkways and places named for John Muir than any other historic figure in California, and he is arguably California’s most famous conservationist. His words have inspired generations to protect our country's public lands, and his work has profoundly shaped the very categories through which Americans understand and envision their relationships with the natural world. A Scottish immigrant to Wisconsin in 1848, Muir walked a thousand miles to the Gulf of Mexico in search of nature’s teachings. In 1868 he ended up in California, and from there, the rest is a remarkable and memorable story. Known to many as the “The Father of our National Parks”, Muir wrote 10 complete books and scores of magazine articles about California, Alaska and the wild places of the world. A tireless advocate of wilderness and the preservation of such, his words and efforts remain palpable throughout California and the world.

In his return to the State Theatre, Muir's great-great-grandson, Robert Hanna, will present the history of Muir himself and take the audience on a very personal and up-close look at Muir's life. With many family stories and seldom seen images, this is truly an exciting evening and one not to be missed.
