John Muir and Ralph Waldo Emerson met in Yosemite and forged a close friendship while visiting the Giant Sequoias. Emerson’s Unitarian thinking had a significant influence on Muir and the campaign to preserve sacred wild places in National Parks, a uniquely American idea. We ponder this appropriate theme close to Earth Day and will include some Sequoia and Yosemite history, plus the story of an amazing man, Sequoia, whose name graces these magnificent species.
