John Muir to tell tales in Mokelumne Hill on Saturday, February 3, 2018
Mokelumne Hill, CA...Acclaimed performance by actor Lee Stetson fun for all.
The Foothill Conservancy is hosting critically acclaimed actor Lee Stetson portraying the renowned Yosemite naturalist John Muir on Saturday February 3, at 7:00 p.m. The performance will be in the historic Mokelumne Hill Town Hall at 8283 Main Street. Tickets are on sale now. “We are excited to have Lee return to our area to perform “John Muir is back -- and man, is he ticked
off,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director Amanda Nelson. “Muir’s life was extraordinary, and Lee’s portrayal of Muir is an intimate sharing of the humor, intelligence and tremendous passion of one of the world’s best-known and admired naturalists.”



Lee Stetson has been performing as John Muir for over 30 years at universities, museums and parks from Washington, D.C. to Hawaii. He portrayed Muir on Ken Burn’s award-winning series “National Parks – America’s Best Idea.” Stetson also performs every summer at Yosemite National Park, where Muir lived for about six years.

John Muir emigrated from Scotland to Wisconsin with his family in 1838. His first visit to Yosemite was in 1868, when he was 30 years old. Muir was so taken with the area’s natural beauty and wilderness that he remained for several years, working in jobs including sheepherder and sawmiller. He was instrumental in advocating for the creation of Yosemite National Park.
Founder of the Sierra Club, Muir is perhaps best known for his passionate advocacy to save wilderness, particularly the Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park, threatened with flooding when the O’Shaughnessy Dam was proposed. What some label the first environmental fight ended unsuccessfully
in 1913 when Congress approved the dam project.

“John Muir’s love for the wilderness, and his desire to protect it, was based on his seeing the connection and interdependency of natural ecosystems,” said Nelson. “Muir understood that protecting natural systems was key to ensuring a healthy environment for both people and wildlife. His lessons live on today as we work to protect the clean water, productive soils and diverse habitats humans and wildlife need to survive.”

Tickets to the performance are $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the show. They’re available online at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3214827.

Tickets can also be purchased from the Foothill Conservancy office by contacting Carolyn at 209-223-3508, or carolyn@foothillconservancy.org

Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase at the event. “John Muir is back -- and man, is he ticked off” is a benefit for the nonprofit Foothill Conservancy, which works to keep our areas towns small, trees tall and river wild.
