Celebrating John Muir Day
The father of the National Parks movement, John Muir, was a remarkable man and he left his mark in so many ways. He was born in Dunbar in East Lothian, Scotland, on April 21, 1838, and his achievements are celebrated every year on this date.
So to mark the occasion this year I have made a short video which you can view using the link below.
John was just 11 years old when he and his family emigrated to North America but his formative years in Scotland played a major part in his future. He was fascinated by the beautiful coast and landscape in East Lothian.
Today you can visit the house where he was born which features an excellent exhibition about his life. More information can be found at https://www.jmbt.org.uk/
