Every year, greenies gather to celebrate pioneering green leaders at the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards. But this year's event, hosted by the Memnosyne Institute on Nov. 9 at the Dallas Arboretum, will be a virtual trip back in time. 

Guest speaker John Muir will be portrayed by Lee Stetson, who has performed as the pioneering conservationist in Yosemite National Park since 1983.

John Muir"Lee has not been to the DFW area in several years so don't miss this opportunity to see the star of the Yosemite Theater and the Ken Burns' National Park series as shown on PBS," said Wendel Withrow, director of Green Source DFW.
