Half Dome

Half Dome

If you’re watching the Half Dome webcam this summer, you might spot a restoration project in action! Yosemite crews are working to revitalize wetland habitat in Ahwahnee Meadow. After removing fill material, they’ll carefully reshape the surface to help water flow more freely. This fall, they’ll sow the meadow with native plants. Ultimately, the project will improve hydrology and protect an important ecosystem that supports diverse plant and animal life.
