Often called "The Father of our National Parks," wilderness prophet John Muir (1838-1914) is widely regarded as America's most influential naturalist.

Lee Stetson brought nearly thirty years of artistry and scholarship on Muir to the Statler Auditorium Nov. 11, performing selections from his stirring stage productions, based entirely on Muir's writings. Stetson discussed his own observations on his portrayal of Muir, and how Muir remains relevant to modern day issues and problems. The event was part of the Plantations lecture series.
