Yosemite Outdoor Adventures

How does exploring geology in the world’s best classroom, Yosemite National Park sound?

Since 1923, Yosemite Conservancy has been Yosemite National Park’s non-profit partner in education, fundraising, research, etc.  One of the many things they do for the park is assemble an annual series of outdoor seminars that connect people to their park, to help build an informed, literate constituency for Yosemite and other wild places.
