Creative Writing and Map Making in Muir Woods

The park’s namesake, John Muir, once said, “This business of writing books is a long, tiresome, endless job.” I’m serious. It made me feel better about the work that I do. You must remember this is a man who traveled all around the world, landed on every continent except Antarctica, and promoted the establishment of five national parks. But yea, writing is intense. If you want to get a taste of this tiresome activity, join Rangers Amy and Laura this Saturday. Spend the afternoon exploring Muir Woods and plan to do some creative writing and map-making activities while making a deep inquiry into the relationship between place and you, you and place, and into how climate change impacts our connections to the places we live and the places we love. Workshop limited to ten people, ages 15 and up. Reservations are required. Call 415.388.2596 to register and for more information.
