      John Muir's Conservation Legacy

      The Blue Ridge Naturalist Network and the West Asheville Library will host Rachel Muir who will examine John Muir`s personal life and experience to see, through the lens of his life, writings, and activism,  how the conservation movement developed in the United States and spread world-wide. We will also discuss  the relevance of his ethics and the importance of his legacy at a time when the conservation movement is undergoing rapid change.   We will also take a brief introduction to the landscapes preserved through his efforts,  as seen in the National Parks and in the John Muir Trail."  
      Free and open to the public.
