This led to the joining in the 1990’s of a group called The Canadian Friends of John Muir in Meaford. They worked to discover the cabin and mill site where Muir lived and worked during his two years in Canada.

Since 2001, Robert has worked to discover the missing link of how Muir arrived in Meaford. It is an incredible forensic style research story following a trail of botanical specimens collected by John Muir in the summer of 1864, “The Summer of Glorious Freedom”.
