September 14th, 2013


Sign up now for the September 14th project.
Project Details:TBD

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 for some updates and other details.

fire status?

wondering if this weekend is still on. is the fire a issue for the work party's?

The event is still on. I was

The event is still on. I was there this past weekend. Even went there and back via Hwy 120 just as it opened.
In the Valley, the fire was a non-issue (except for all the missing tourists but that meant no lines and traffic jams).
Sunday morning there was a little bit of smokey haze but not enough that we could smell the smoke.
The weather was gorgeous and the nights incredibly mild.
Even if the winds were to turn towards the south-east and the Valley were to fill with smoke, all it means is that the Volunteer Office would cancel the project. We would still be allowed to spend the weekend there.
