John Muir's World
An Earth Day 2019 Event on April 22nd!

Celebrate Earth Day 2019 by meeting John Muir, the father of our modern environmental movement and national parks portrayed by actor Paul Akert.

“John Muir’s World ~ Boyhood to Adult 1838 - 1914”
will be presented at the Urban Ecology Center, 1500 E. Park Place in Milwaukee,
on Monday April 22nd at 7pm.

The program is free (donations appreciated) and open to the public.
For more information visit http://www.organicarts.info/
Reservations are not required,
but a seat can be held by emailing orgarts@gmail.com

Paul Akert’s re-enactment and PowerPoint program “John Muir’s World” brings to life the story of John Muir from his early days in Wisconsin, education at UW in Madison, his journey to the Sierra Nevada mountains, and years as a writer and advocate for the creation of Yosemite National Park with Theodore Roosevelt.

The spiritual quality and enthusiasm toward nature expressed in Muir’s writings, illustrated though pictures, quotes, and personal stories by Mr. Akert,
has inspired generations of earth-conscious readers
to take action to help preserve large nature areas.

Bill Staines is one of the most durable and beloved singers on the folk music scene today. Staines has twenty-six recordings to his credit and has written over three hundred songs, many of which have been recorded by the likes of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Makem and Clancy, Nancy Griffith, Glen Yarbrough, and Jerry Jeff Walker. His music is sung at campfires and folk music gatherings, in homes and churches, all around the country. On stage, Staines is an intimate, compelling performer, out of the folk scene of the 60’s, encouraging his audience to sing with him on his chorus songs. He will mix in traditional tunes with his own contemporary folk ballads. His humorous tales of life on the road and observations of everyday people provide an entertaining blend of story and song.
