Muir understood and applied the connections between people, wildlife, the earth and the ecosystems that support life. His role as a rancher, scientist, writer and activist, are only some of his many talents and professions.

As one person, through tireless and steadfast effort, he contributed to significant and positive changes in the United States
and around the world. His influence, ideology and legacy of environmental activism continues on through the lives of countless others today in the United States and abroad nearly 100 years after his death.
