Yosemite Mariposa Grove

Yosemite's iconic grove reopens (Published Friday, July 20, 2018)

Journey to the first nationally protected lands in our country’s history, Yosemite Valley and the nearby Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias, both preserved in perpetuity by Abraham Lincoln more than 150 years ago.  We’ll discover how the seeds of the sequoias took root in the American imagination and grew into our grand system of national parks as we explore a brand new way to see the big trees up close.
