Future Special Exhibits
John Muir was a botanist throughout his life and his fondness for nature and beauty of plants contributed significantly to his understanding of the need to preserve wilderness. This exhibit traces his travels to Canada, Indiana, The American southeast, California, and Alaska and presents vivid images and specimens of the actual plants that Muir held in his hands, carried in his pockets, and preserved for all time.
Nature’s Beloved Son is a traveling exhibit from Exhibit Envoy, supported by the Skirball Foundation, Heyday Books, Michael McCone, Micheal Boone, Martha Kropf, Robert Marx, Mary Louise Myers, and the Holt- Atherton Special Collections, University of Pacific Library, curated by Bonnie J. Gisel and photography by Stephen J. Joseph.
