Anniversary Publications


Yosemite Conservancy is pleased to publish two new books celebrating the 150th anniversary of this remarkable place.

Award-winning filmmaker, master storyteller and honorary park ranger Dayton Duncan’s Seed of the Future: Yosemite and the Evolution of the National Park Idea is a lively history of the often-tumultuous beginnings of the preservation movement, lavishly illustrated with more than 100 landscape and archival images. Featuring such visionaries as James Mason Hutchings, Galen Clark, Frederick Law Olmsted, John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt, this volume commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act and captures the amazing story of Yosemite.

Everyone has a favorite Yosemite story. To keep and share those memories, the National Park Service and Yosemite Conservancy have collaborated on a humorous and heartfelt collection penned by park staff, the local community and visitors. Inspiring Generations: 150 Years, 150 Stories in Yosemite will inspire smiles of recognition and many trips to the park.

Proceeds from purchasing a Yosemite Conservancy publication will fund trail repair, habitat restoration, protection for endangered species and more.
