And we have a chance to give the park something great.
What do you get Yosemite, the park that has everything — from stunning Yosemite Falls and Half Dome, to black bears and Giant Sequoias?
By taking action now, you can help pass a bill through Congress that would expand Yosemite by 1,600 acres. That’s 1,600 more acres of Giant Sequoias, meadows with snowmelt creeks, black bears, and memories of camping under the stars for our kids and their kids. It’s also the 1,600 acres that John Muir, the man who championed the idea of Yosemite National Park, intended to be part of the park in the first place.
But long ago this land was stripped from the park and given to loggers, miners and the railroad industry.
That’s why I need you to email Senator Feinstein right now.
The boundaries of Yosemite National Park haven’t been adjusted for the last 70 years. This is our shot.
Your action right now can help better protect Sierra red fox, Goshawks and wolverines from the threat of future development. Yosemite’s 150th birthday is around the corner. If enough Californians contact Congress, we can see to it that we give the park that has everything 1,600 more acres of beauty.
Thank you for being with me. Let’s leave Yosemite better — and bigger — than we found it.
