Director Michael Coleman grew up in Martinez, California, where John Muir also resided. Long inspired by Muir, our favorite and easily the most famous naturalist, Coleman created this short nature film to celebrate Muir's birthday this past April. Many of the locations featured in the film are authentic to Muir's life, including his home in Martinez and Muir Woods National Monument just north of San Francisco, California, and the narration is a collection of inspiring Muir quotes. You can follow Coleman on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
