The Extra Mile

— Points of Light Volunteer Pathway —

John Muir's enduring legacy is evident in the vast acreage comprising our National Park System and the Worldwide influence of the Sierra Club, created to advocate for the survival of the world's natural resources. Initially driven by his spiritual love for nature and the Wilderness, Muir became a prolific author and influential champion and defender of the natural world. He raised awareness about the fragility of the wilderness and made us mindful that in preserving it we save something greater than ourselves.
"When we try to pick out something by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe."
