John Muir and his Wild California Adventures    NEW!

Scotsman John Muir did more to transpose California than any single person in the Golden State. His efforts brought us Muir Woods, Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. This two-part class investigates the life of John Muir and selected readings of his writings about his wild adventures. In one adventure, he wanted to know what birds and squirrels felt in a horrific winter windstorm, so he climbed to the top of a 100 ft. tall pine tree and hung-on for the wild ride. Maybe you’ll enjoy his writings on having a conversation with a Grizzly Bear 10 yards away from him. Let’s together honor and appreciate the life of John Muir.
