Journaling with John Muir

Saturday, October 19, 2013  | 2:00 - 4:00 pm | Free
Make a truly unique nature journal as you interact-or just enjoy -a one-person performance by Lee Stetson as John Muir!

You will be introduced to both Muir the man and his profound love of wildness as you create your journal with "stirring" quotes from Muir himself. You'll hear tales of thrilling adventures from being in the wilderness straight from Muir's own writings, such as "The Perilous Night on Mount Shasta", when Muir freezing in the midst of a blizzard was simultaneously boiled and blistered in hot springs, or the time he took an astonishing ride down a Yosemite Valley canyon wall on a snow avalanche! Be sure to ask John Muir questions about his adventures and enjoy a nibble of bread and a sip of tea - a John Muir staple!

Materials are provided. Space is limited and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. This activity is best for adults or children ages 12 and up. Please note: children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Additionally, the Muir shows have toured throughout the country to universities, parks, museums, wilderness and environmental organizations from Washington D.C. to Hawaii. Mr. Stetson lectures frequently on the arts and the environment, and spends a considerable portion of his time promoting the performing arts in the national parks. Lee's career has included founding and managing the Hawaii Performing Arts Company, being the Artistic Manager of both the Hawaii Theatre Festival and the Antique Theatre Festival of Idaho, and freelance directing throughout the Northwest and in Los Angeles.
