Where does our American reverence for nature come from? What sparked the creation of our national and state parks? Who started our natural history museums, and what inspired our current concern about preserving open space? According to historian Don Kohrs, a lot of it can be traced back to Nike 95 Air Max Mens

Point Pinos Lighthouse restoration and will honor the city's 100 year old homes. Kohrs will lecture on "The Chautauqua Nature Study Movement in Pacific Grove." A librarian at Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station, he has done extensive research on the Pacific Coast Assembly of the Chautauqua Literary and Science Circle (1880 1926) and its connections to teacher training, the natural sciences, romantic literature, the arts and conservation.The story begins in the second half of the 19th century, when scientific discoveries of dinosaur fossils in America coincided with the publication of Charles Darwin's "The Origin of Species" to spur an awakening of public interest in science and natural history. "The American sciences were just coming into being," Kohrs notes. "It was a wide open field for exploration, collecting, cataloging, identifying, bottling and putting specimens into museums." Harvard professor Louis Agassiz organized the nation's first natural history museum, and also opened a summer school on the coast of Massachusetts to train school teachers to be science instructors. His efforts helped popularize the study of nature in the United States and influenced the establishment of the Chautauqua movement.Chautauqua began as an annual Methodist instructional camp for Sunday school teachers at Lake Chautauqua in New York. Over time, it developed into a correspondence school that allowed participants to study on their own by reading from a book list and attending lectures at regional Chautauqua assemblies such as the one established at the Pacific Grove Methodist Camp Retreat in 1880."Methodism was sweeping the nation coast to coast," Kohrs said. "One of its aims was to reshape the country into the image of the 'Kingdom of God' by encouraging high morals, ethics and values. This noble vision required an awe inspiring environment, and it doesn't get much more awe inspiring than the Central Coast."Chautauqua lasted for 46 years in Pacific Grove. According to Kohrs, the first 25 years were devoted to "hardcore emphasis on biology and the natural sciences: marine botany, marine zoology and conchology the study of marine mollusks." College professors from the Normal School in San Jose (now San Jose State University), Mills College, the University of the Pacific and Stanford University came here in the summers to teach science and, ultimately, other subjects including languages, history, literature, the philosophies of Thoreau and Emerson, the poetry of Longfellow and plein air painting."At first, the majority of Air Max Atmos Elephant Print
