Oct 1, 2015: Join us October 1st as we commemorate Yosemite National Park’s 125th Anniversary! We’ll honor this special anniversary with a ceremony that will honor the park’s rich history, highlight current park stewardship, and look ahead to the future of Yosemite National Park. The event will include special guests, music, giveaways, and birthday cake! You can also bring a small Yosemite token to contribute to our time-capsule.
