President Teddy Roosevelt joins Sierra Club founder John Muir in 1903 at Yosemite National Park. Muir's struggle against the devastation of the subalpine meadows surrounding Yosemite Valley resulted in the creation of Yosemite National Park on October 1, 1890. In 1908, Roosevelt paid tribute to Muir by designating Muir Woods, a redwood forest north of San Francisco, a national monument. Join the Club!
