Adding more horses and mules to Yosemite’s hard-working team, continuing a historic and cultural legacy.

Cultural & Historic

Yosemite’s rich cultural legacy is woven into the fabric of the park. From American Indians who lived in the Valley for millennia, to conservation advocates such as Galen Clark and John Muir, to renowned naturalists and pioneering climbers, the people, ideas and traditions that have shaped Yosemite are as intrinsic to the park as granite cliffs and towering trees. Preserving and sharing that past helps visitors forge a connection with Yosemite that will last well into the future.

Creating an online gallery will share Yosemite Museum collections of natural and cultural history with a wider audience.
