Muir's passion for the wild outdoors (and everything in it) helped create the first national park system. The stone's message like that of Muir is that we are all interdependent. Every bit of soil, every bug, plant and animal plays a part. Caring for the earth and its inhabitants is not just something we should do, it's something our existence depends upon!
