John Muir in Florida

One of the fathers of the conservation movement, John Muir, set out on a nearly 1,000 mile trek across the South in 1867. He started in Indiana, entered Florida at Fernandina Beach, and concluded his adventure in Cedar Key. Dan Chapman has lived in Atlanta since 2000, covering environmental issues for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He decided to follow in Muir's footsteps to personally experience the ravaged ecological condition of the region. His book detailing the experience is titled "A Road Running Southward: Following John Muir's Journey Through an Endangered Land." #johnmuir #danchapman #craigpittman #florida #welcometoflorida #floridahistory #stpetecatalyst #stpete #tampabay #radio #radiostpeteĀ
