The National Park Service turns 100 on August 25, 2016, and everyone can take part in the celebration! The centennial will kick off a second century of stewardship of America’s national parks and engaging communities through recreation, conservation, and historic preservation programs. The Centennial Goal is to connect with and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates. We invite you to find your park and discover the national parks and programs in your own backyard!
The Centennial campaign theme is “Find Your Park,” encouraging people to explore the parks and units comprising the National Park Service. Visit www.FindYourPark.com to learn more.
Yosemite National Park has commemorated two significant park anniversaries over the past three years including the 125th Anniversary of the establishment of Yosemite National Park on October 1, 2015, and the 150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act on June 30th, 2014.
Our team consists of Yosemite National Park staff comprising the “Anniversary Ambassadors”, all of our park partners, community member volunteers including the Yosemite Gateway Partners, California State Parks, and National Park Service staff. We have a mosaic of backgrounds and interests — with Yosemite and the National Park Service at our core.
