About the Film
As part of our ongoing tribute to the legacy of naturalist John Muir, the Museum will be presenting weekend screenings of this new film. “Yosemite: A Gathering of Spirit”, a documentary film by Ken Burns each Saturday & Sunday at 3 pm from June 28 - Oct 26. These screenings are made possible by the Yosemite Conservancy, the only philanthropic organization dedicated exclusively to Yosemite National Park.

The production of this 25-minute documentary film was funded by Yosemite Conservancy donors to honor the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant. The important story told in Yosemite: A Gathering of Spirit focuses on individuals and how their efforts laid the groundwork for Yosemite National Park. Visionary Americans like Abraham Lincoln, Galen Clark, John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt understood that the wonders of the American wilderness are not only our inheritance, but our responsibility.

Both Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan have spent time in Yosemite and are passionate storytellers. It is their goal to inspire those who care about Yosemite to follow in the footsteps of Muir, Clark, Roosevelt, and Lincoln and fight to keep Yosemite’s natural and cultural treasures preserved and protected for visitors today and for future generations.
