Yosemite Conservancy – Supporting the park

Today I’d like to put in some good words for the Yosemite Conservancy. Hereinafter called YC. They are a non-profit that has been supporting the park since 1923.  YC was the result of a merger between the Yosemite Association and the Yosemite Fund.

YC is not part of the National Park Service. It is influenced by the park and the current head is Mike Tollefson, former YNP superintendent. The headquarters is in San Francisco, but there is an office in El Portal.

I suggest you join to show your love of the place. Members get 15% off all the items in their on-line and park stores.  YC has a great Outdoor Adventures program for members. The YC webcams are a super way to check out the park from afar.

The annual Spring Forum is being held the end of March. It draws about 200 members. Try to attend if you can. You can join there. Go to the Valley Visitor Center – many talks are held in the large theater.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I couldn’t sleep at all last night, just a-thinking of you. Baby things weren’t right. Well I was tossing and turnin’, turnin’ and tossing, tossing and turnin’ all night.” – Bobby Lewis
