"The Wilderness World of John Muir"(2001, editor Edwin Way Teale) is an anthology of great nature writing by a most influential conservationist. This "Patron Saint of the American wilderness" and "Father of the National Parks" so freely left society and so deeply connected to nature that he inspired our American culture and psyche to always value and protect wild places. 

Check out this 2006 summary of wilderness history, page 9-10, "Wilderness and the American Mind": http://missouri.sierraclub.org/thb/newsletter/2006/07/200607-heartland-sierran.pdf

Obtain & Read: 1/3 of the book for our first meeting, to start to commemorate wilderness protection and the 100th year since Muir's death. 

Contact Facilitator, Patty Brown, at:[masked] or [masked] to register by Feb 9th. Limit 10.

Meet When: 3 alternate Thursdays: 2/13, 2/27, and 3/13, from 6:30-8:30pm. Suggested $10 donation for meetings space.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
