Celebrating John Muir: Geotourism Center Now Open

John Muir Geotourism Center Open House

John Muir Geotourism Center - Coulterville, California, USA

JMGCThe John Muir Geotoursim Center had its official ribbon cutting and open house this past Saturday, April 20, 2013 at its permanent location in Coulterville


After several years of hard work and planning, a highway dedication for the Historic John Muir Route in 2010, and three John Muir Festivals, the John Muir Geotourism Center (JMGC) is now open and receiving visitors. JMGC honors the legacy of Muir while sharing the nature, culture and activities that Coulterville in the Sierra Nevada foothills has to offer.


The Historic Gazzolo building located at 5016 Main Street in Coulterville is the new home of the Center. The ribbon cutting and opening of the JMGC was not the only thing celebrated at the open house: John Muir's birthday was April 21, 1838.
