Speaker: Randy Larsen
Several years ago, the California Historical Society named John Muir the most influential Californian in the state's history (Ronald Reagan came in second). There are more places in California named after Muir than any other individual. John Muir is the grandaddy of our National Park System and founder of the Sierra Club.
Randy Larsen has lived here in Chico since the late 1980's and PhD dissertation explored how Muir cultivated personal virtues such as reverence, curiosity, gratitude, etc. through wilderness ramblings. Randy's presentation will explore these virtues and how Muir tried to teach them to his good friend Annie Bidwell.
Special thanks to the City of Chico for its generous support of Chico History Museum.
