Sign up now for the June 29th project.

Project Details:Ken has changed the project location for the June 28-30 weekend from Lake Eleanor to Bridalveil. He plans to have us work on ash/general campground cleanup and repair/installation of fire rings. The campground will have just opened for the season, so there is sure to be some work needed.

Bridalveil campsites will be marked with the group's name; we won't know the site numbers in advance, but I'm usually they put groups in the "teens" near the host site.


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:
This information will be provided to you with the Yosemite Gate Pass when you sign up. The Yellow Pines campground has two 'comfort' stations and water is provided. All food MUST be kept in the bear-proof boxes located in each campsite. Updates: Check this page or the web site at http://www.pgvip.net for some updates and other details.
