Located at the northern edge of Tuolumne Meadows, Parsons Memorial Lodge has been hosting a popular summer series since 1992. In July and August, visitors are welcome to join in the many diverse programs offered. The setting (reached via an easy walk through the meadow) is unique; the lodge is one of the earliest rustic stone buildings in a national park and was an important forerunner of National Park Service architecture.
Parsons Memorial Lodge Summer Series presents speakers ranging from artists and philosophers to research scientists, naturalists and historians. In 2013, the lineup included “The Fate of Yosemite's Melting Glaciers” and the “17th 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.
