Join the National Park Service for a free campfire program on Saturday, September 5, 2015 at John Muir National Historic Site (NHS) in Martinez. The program begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts roughly 1.5 hours. Rangers will lead the group in songs, skits and stories to celebrate the legacy of John Muir, one of the greatest naturalists and conservationists the United States has ever known.
No reservations are required. Meet at the front gate of John Muir National Historic Site, 4202 Alhambra Avenue, in Martinez, California (at the Alhambra Ave. exit off Highway 4). Bring the whole family! There will be something for everyone. Come with picnic blankets, lawn chairs, marshmallows and a desire to have a good time. Rangers will direct you from the gate to the fire ring. If it rains heavily, or if it is a “Spare the Air Day” the program will be canceled.
John Muir NHS, located at 4202 Alhambra Avenue in Martinez and is open seven days a week from 10 AM to 5 PM. Admission to the site is free of charge. For more information, please visit the park website at www.nps.gov/jomu or call (925) 228-8860.
