Indigenous peoples knew of Yosemite for thousands of years before it was discovered” and invaded during the California Gold Rush. Since that time, its stewards have struggled to find an incisive balance that allows for use, but prevents abuse.

Your Yosemite urges its owners, all United States citizens, to be ever watchful of Yosemite’s well-being.
