Note Card by Nancy Middendorf
Text on reverse reads:
"John Muir - (1838-1914), explorer and writer, helped start wilderness preservation in the U.S. He was instrumental in establishing our first national park [Note: This is incorrect - Muir was instrumental in establishing Yosemite National Park in 1890, but the first National Park was Yellowstone in 1872, which Muir had no part in.] and founded the Sierra Club, an influential environmental organization. John Muir taught the importance of exploring, enjoying, and protecting our natural heritage. For more information on the Sierra Club's current efforts and activities, write to: Sierra Club, 730 Polk St. address, San Francisco, CA 94104. [Please note: current Sierra Club address is 85 Second St., San Francisco, CA 94105.]
