Description: University of the Pacific, which houses the bulk of John Muir’s papers, letters, sketches and other materials, hosts a day-long symposium with talks by guest authors and historians. This year marks the 100th anniversary of John Muir's death and the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant. In the one hundred years since John Muir's death, we raise the question: what has been saved; what has been lost that can be directly associated with Muir's pioneering efforts in conservation and his philosophy and vision of preservation, protection, and wise public-use which led to establishment of many federal, state, and local parks, preserves, and recreational areas throughout the world, and especially in North America. Registration is required and includes, continental breakfast, buffet lunch and reception. To register: go.pacific.edu/johnmuir
