Students explore Muir's life as he takes his 1,000-mile walk from Indiana to Florida to study geology and botany. Students will see some of Muir's journal sketches and read about how he traveled to Alaska to study glaciers. His legacy lives on in the celebration of Earth Day, April 21, which is also Muir's birthday.
