Wisconsin's John Muir-Wilderness Preservation, Natural Resource Management and Harmony with Nature

Neenah and Menasha will celebrate the legacy of John Muir and the centennial of the Naional Park Service in October

Professor Temple will discuss the complex history of how American thinking about conservation and our relationship with nature has evolved over the past 200 years. He will highlight key figures, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, George Perkins Marsh, John Muir, Gifford Pinchott and Aldo Leopold, who each introduced new ideas that have shaped our American conservation philosophy. The question remains: Will we ever achieve the ultimate goal of harmony with nature?
