Without ongoing restoration work, many of Yosemite’s historically significant wilderness cabins would be lost to weather and rodents.
In 2012, work begins on Sachse Springs Snow Survey Cabin. Built in 1947, the cabin has a long history of providing shelter for crews on search & rescue missions and for scientists collecting data on yearly snowfall—important for water management strategies across California. Rangers also use this cabin when patrolling the area, ensuring hikers are safe.
Saches Springs Snow Survey Cabin is a historic example of 1940’s log construction and eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. It joins a list of unique cabins in Yosemite that, with your support, are now preserved and protected for the future.
