Set to be held on April 15, "John Muir: California's Most Famous Resident" will follow Muir's life from Scotland to migrating as a child to America, his education and his quest to preserve the country's nature and the beauty it holds.

"Beyond being voted California's most famous resident, you may likely come away thinking of Muir as one of the world's most interesting men," museum staff said.

The program will feature Garrett Dailey, an attorney and noted authority on John Muir who taught a course on John Muir at the University of Edinburgh Centre for Open Learning as well as lectured and spoke with various groups and organizations.

"John Muir: California's Most Famous Resident" will be held virtually on April 15 at 11:30 a.m.
