This week I’m continuing my John Muir birthday celebration. In this episode of California’s Golden Parks, Huell visits the Muir house and property in Martinez, California.

Huell tours the the Victorian residence in Martinez where the naturalist John Muir lived from 1890 to his death in 1914, and meets the special folks who are responsible for preserving this important site. While living there, Muir laid the foundations for the creation of the National Park Service in 1916.
