Nature's Beloved Son:
Rediscovering John Muir's
In the spirit in which John Muir embraced the botanical world, Nature's Beloved Son: Rediscovering John Muir's Botanical Legacy traces the famed early environmentalist's travels through North America and presents digitally restored images of the actual plants that he held in his hands, carried in his pockets, and preserved as specimens. This traveling exhibition is produced by Exhibit Envoy and is based on the Heyday Boks publication of the same name.
