An Evening with John Muir

On Friday, February 6th at 7:00 p.m. the Foothill Conservancy is hosting “Conversation with a Tramp: An Evening with John Muir” at the Town Hall. This stirring production has been presented every summer in Yosemite National Park – and throughout the country and around the world as well – since 1983. It depicts Muir’s last dramatic battle to preserve the beautiful Hetch Hetchy Valley, part of Yosemite National Park, but threatened by San Francisco’s desire to construct a dam there, drowning it hundreds of feet deep. Audience members are his guests as they await final word of the Hetch Hetchy’s fate from Washington decision makers. While waiting, Muir’s righteous anger at the ‘temple destroyers’ is tempered by his hearty good humor, and his relating of a number of his most extraordinary wilderness adventures, including his remarkable ‘tree ride’ in a Sierra windstorm.

Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. Tickets available online, from the Amador Council of Tourism in Sutter Creek or at the Conservancy office by contacting Carolyn,  209.223.3508. Tickets are also available at the Hotel Leger.
