Yosemite Conservation Heritage Center

July 19th, 2017

When visiting Yosemite National Park, a stop at to the Yosemite Conservation Heritage Center is a must do. Its stone walls, high pointed arches, and its history in education is enough to draw one in. It was built in 1904 by volunteers. Its purpose was and continues to be the Sierra Club’s home base within the Yosemite’s landscape.

Located within the Yosemite Valley floor it sits right across from the Housekeeping Camp. The Conservation Center houses information of the area to its visitors. Free programs are offered throughout the week.

On the night I visited, a program on the great John Muir was presented by Professor Wurtz from the University of the Pacific. He was quite the Muir expert and shared his knowledge on Muir’s connection with the sequoias shared in Wurtz’s presentation “John Muir and the Big Trees”.

I hope you enjoy your visit to it.
