John Muir: Father of Our National Parks

Flyer for John Muir: Father of Our National ParksJohn Muir was a brilliant inventor who went through a life changing  to become  one of the world’s most recognized and impactful  conservationists.  His writings have inspired millions to take to the outdoors, and re-discover the beauty and importance of nature. Now, the father of our National Parks shares his personal story with you. Using passages from Muir's own works, and a depth of research into his life and times, award-winning actor J.T Turner celebrates the life of this great American immigrant, philosopher, and writer. This is a first person dramatic performance that will transport you from Muir's childhood in Scotland, through his years as an engineer, inventor and explorer, to his fight to preserve the wilds of America.
