The John Muir Ecological Park, located on AIA in Yulee, celebrates Muir’s visit, by providing visitors with a little insight to Muir’s one year adventure. The park offers a scenic walk on 485 feet of boardwalk, complete with built-in benches and four sheltered observation areas. Beneath a canopy of forest, visitors can appreciate wildlife and read interpretive signs describing the native plants and animals.
John Muir founded the Sierra Club in 1892, and was America's most famous and influential naturalist and conservationist. He has been called "The Father of our National Parks." A visit to the John Muir Ecological Park is a surprise break from busy AIA, a nice place to take a short walk, eat a picnic lunch or read a book. The park is located right next to the Yulee Post Office.
