Restoration of Mariposa Grove

The restoration of Mariposa Grove is an ambitious, multiyear effort, funded in partnership between Yosemite Conservancy and the National Park Service to preserve these majestic trees by balancing visitor needs with ecological protection. In 2015, restoration crews began removing asphalt from roads and parking areas in the upper and lower Groves to restore hydrology, vegetation and habitat for sensitive wildlife species. To restore peace and tranquility, several paved road segments are being converted to pedestrian trails.
