A Walk in the Wild: Continuing Muir’s Journey

Follow John Muir on great adventures, and learn about modern day explorers and conservationists.

A Walk in the Wild features the historic iconic California figure, John Muir, as a “guide,” inviting visitors to examine, explore, and reconsider their perception of, and relationship to, the natural world. Throughout the exhibit, historical stories and artifacts complement contemporary stories from “Modern Day Muirs,” who continue Muir’s legacy of conservation and inspiration.

This project was quite complex, requiring a high level of attention to detail. West Office staff did an excellent job of keeping our team on task and on schedule.
