This weekend we will be observing not only Earth Day (Sunday, April 22) but also the anniversary of the birth of John Muir (Saturday, April 21), who is often called the “patron saint of the American wilderness.” So this week I’ve chosen an episode of California’s Gold in which Huell has a fascinating conversation with John Muir with the beauty of Yosemite National Park as a backdrop.

Huell goes back in time and visits with John Muir at Yosemite National Park. Muir was America’s most famous and influential naturalist and conservationist who is often called the father of our National Parks System. In 1892, he founded the Sierra Club to protect the newly created Yosemite National Park. Through his writing and actions, he taught the people of his time, and ours, the importance of experiencing and protecting our natural heritage.
