Story Time for Kids
Muir was a born storyteller. Join us for Monthly Story Time.
What a psalm the storm was singing,
and how fresh the smell of the washed earth and leaves,
and how sweet the still small voices of the storm!
--John Muir, Stickeen
John Muir used to tell his daughters stories around the dinner table at his family home in Martinez. Children and families are invited to join the National Park Service for a new story time program at the John Muir National Historic Site, to help keep Muir's tradition alive!
