John Muir National Historic Site Travel Poster

from 2.00


John Muir played many roles in his life, all of which helped him succeed in his role as an advocate for Nature. As America’s most famous naturalist and conservationist, Muir fought to protect the wild places he loved, places we can still visit today. Muir’s writings convinced the U.S. government to protect Yosemite, Sequoia, Grand Canyon and Mount Rainier as national parks. His remarkable vision – that all creation is one community made up of equal companions – still inspires people to love nature and to work to save wildlands and wildlife. Muir is often called the father of national parks and forest reservations, forerunners of national forests. Muir urged people to experience wild nature so they would be inspired to defend it and save it. 

John Muir National Historic Site preserves the home where John Muir lived for the last 34 years of his life. The home is located in the Alhambra Valley, just 2 miles south of Martinez, California and approximately 30 miles east of San Francisco.

This one of a kind John Muir National Historic Site print is a unique tribute to the WPA posters that were created in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The WPA posters were originally constructed as a government initiative to generate interest in the national parks and improve park attendance. We have designed WPA travel posters and postcards featuring all 59 National Parks and many other National Monuments, Memorial, National Recreation Areas and so forth to celebrate America’s diverse homeland and to encourage you to reflect on the rich history and beauty that each national park has to offer. We hope to inspire you to find your park and travel to the stunning landscapes which make America so great. 

Our posters are printed on beautiful Archival Professional Matte Paper. A true non-reflective matte with warm whites and a super smooth finish. It’s unique lusterless surface provides elegant color reproduction with subtlety and warmth.
