Prior to the film screening, Museum interpreters will present background information on Yosemite National Park and its history in the context of the career of John Muir and his connections with community leaders in Riverside in the early 20th Century.

About the Film: Yosemite has inspired generations of people for thousands of years. On June 30, 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act, establishing Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove as the first protected wild land for all time. In addition, this grant marked the first California State Park.
