Happy Birthday John Muir

Happy Birthday to John Muir, who was born 170 years ago today. Born in Scotland, Muir’s family eventually settled near Portage, and he attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Muir helped found the Sierra Club and his influence helped spur the creation of the National Parks System, and during his time on this earth he was a tireless advocate of the preservation of our natural wonders.

Happy Birthday, John Muir.
