The Nature of Wildworks is honored to bring Lee Stetson to Topanga to present “Conversations with a Tramp”. The event will be held at The Topanga Community House on Saturday, September 6, 2008 at 7 pm.
This stirring one-person production has been seen every summer in Yosemite National Park - and throughout the country and around the world as well - since 1983. It’s based on the life of the naturalist John Muir, and Stetson’s presentation is a fine introduction to both Muir the man and his profound love of wildness, his “plant people,” and his “fellow mortals,” the animals.
It depicts Muir's last dramatic battle to preserve the beautiful Hetch Hetchy Valley, part of Yosemite National Park, which is being threatened by San Francisco’s desire to construct a dam there, ultimately drowning the valley in hundred’s of feet of water. As audience members you will be his guests, as he awaits the final word on Hetch Hetchy’s fate from Washington decision makers.
John Muir fought many battles in his lifetime to save Yosemite’s beloved wilderness, similar battles to the ones we’re still fighting today in efforts such as the campaign to “Save Topanga State Park”. Like Muir says “Everything’s hitched to everything else.”
