“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” – Wilderness World of John Muir
This fall, the Neenah and Menasha Public Libraries will be hosting “Wisconsin’s John Muir: An Exhibit Celebrating the Centennial of the National Park Service.” This traveling exhibit on loan from the Wisconsin Historical Society will be on display October 11-17 at the Neenah Public Library and October 18-25 at the Menasha Public Library.
In conjunction with the Muir exhibit, local attorney and history enthusiast Tom Sutter will be presenting his own exhibit, “National Parks, Past and Present,” throughout the month of October. Sutter’s exhibit will feature historic national park photos, as well as modern images to compare. Both of these exhibits celebrate not only the legacy of John Muir, but also the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service this month.
Throughout the month of October, both libraries will host guest speakers, book discussions and several special presentations that highlight Muir, wilderness preservation, natural resource management and harmony with nature.
