John Muir’s Birthday and Earth Day Celebration

Join the National Park Service annual celebration of both John Muir’s 179th birthday and Earth Day on Saturday, April 22, 10am to 4pm, at the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez.

This celebration, held rain or shine, features family-oriented outdoor activities, exhibits by national parks and conservation organizations, and live music, including a bagpipe band. Parking and admission are free.

Visitors can enjoy self-guided tours of Muir’s historic Italianate Victorian home. Bring your kids, family, and friends for a refreshing outdoor experience celebrating our Earth. Last year, over 2,700 guests attended this event.

John Muir National Historic Site, located at 4202 Alhambra Avenue in Martinez, is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. Admission is free of charge. Free general parking and shuttle transportation will be available at Alhambra High School (Alhambra Avenue at “E” Street; follow the signs).
