Sign up now for the April 20th project.

Project Details:It looks like we're staying in Yellow Pines! Ken has a great project planned for our group, installing new sign posts along Southside Drive. We'll be the inaugural group in Yellow Pine site A for the year; since it's still April, we can have fires in the morning to take the chill off --- just be sure to put them out before leaving the campground. There will also be a scout troop in site B.


How this Works:
A few days prior to the weekend, I will send you a gate pass for free admission to the park, along with information on the location of our campsite. We will start work at 9 a.m. Saturday and finish near 3 p.m. The work will be such that you can work at your own pace, and the NPS will provide all required tools.

You're free to do as you like after we complete the project. Some people will go climbing while others may go for a hike.

Please be awake by 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and ready to leave no later than 8:30. It does take a while to eat, clean up and get ready to work.

Previous Projects:
Previous projects can be viewed in the Gallery.

Work Gear:
Please bring proper shoes to work in (NO TEVAS OR SANDALS). Tennis shoes are OK, hiking boots are better. The park service should have plenty of gloves too, but if you have your own, bring them. Also, be prepared to bring a lunch and some water. We usually take a break around noon and eat.

Weather:
The weather in Yosemite can change within a few hours. Please be prepared for it.

Camping:
Yellow Pines, site A
Updates: Check this page or the web site at http://www.pgvip.net for some updates and other details.
