 Connie Nelson’s recent Conservation Corner story mentioned that John Muir – who walked from Jeffersonville, Indiana, to Cedar Key in 1867 – worked with President Theodore Roosevelt to establish America’s National Park Service.  

Sunday night, September 27, PBS will premiere its new documentary, THE NATIONAL PARKS:  AMERICA’S BEST IDEA, directed by Ken Burns.

The 12-hour series will air nightly that week, through Friday, October 2, and will be carried by our local PBS affiliate, WUFT (Channel 5).
