We're ending the year with some musical whimsy, to the tune of "My Favorite Things" (from The Sound of Music) ...

Bright smiles from happy new junior rangers

PSAR teams keeping visitors safe from danger

A new set of stats on Sierra birds that sing

These are a few of our favorite things

These are a few of our favorite things

When it's just too cold, to go out hiking,

And we're feeling blue,

We simply remember our favorite things

And then we all say ... THANK YOU!


 As donors, volunteers, program participants and more, you made a difference in the park this year. From all of us at the Conservancy, thank you for supporting Yosemite, and happy new year!
