Located at the northern edge of Tuolumne Meadows, Parsons Memorial Lodge has been hosting a popular summer series since 1992. During the summer months, visitors are invited to join one of its many diverse programs. The setting (an easy walk through the meadow) is unique; Parsons Lodge is one of the earliest rustic stone buildings in a national park, and became the trademark of National Park Service architecture.
Parsons Memorial Lodge Summer Series presents speakers ranging from artists and philosophers to research scientists, naturalists and historians. For example, in 2012 the line-up included: ‘Tiny Botanical Treasures of Tuolumne’ and the ‘16th Annual Tuolumne Meadows Poetry Festival’.
With your support this popular program gives all visitors the opportunity to connect to the park and learn something new in a unique setting.
