JOHN MUIR, ONE OF OUR NATION’S PIONEER CONSERVATIONISTS, was born on this day in 1838.
The Wyoming Outdoor Council has immense gratitude for Mr. Muir’s lifetime of conservation and preservation work, and his priceless contributions to our nation’s natural heritage.
Here is a quote to contemplate, in celebration of what would be Mr. Muir’s 172nd birthday:
“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul.”
