John Muir /Lee Stetson is very pleased indeed to occasionally meet with the bright young faces touring with The Grand Classroom – an organization whose mission is to show students some of the most beautiful places on earth, and to educate them on the importance of preserving the environment. Yosemite is one of their many splendid destinations.  As technology plays an increasing role in students’ lives, the Grand Classroom folks believe – as does Mr. Muir – it is more important than ever to make sure our kids have a connection to the outdoors. By getting kids outside now, it will help preserve not only our National Parks, but will instill an lifelong appreciation of the outdoors.
