Sign up now for the May 16th project.

Project Details: Our group will be painting. Ken Stowell will meet out group in Yellow Pines at 9AM as usual.

Please wear appropriate clothing. If you have your own gloves, feel free to bring them as the park may 'forget' to bring the 'Glove Bucket'. Hmmm, that sounds like a Tarantino movie

Camping: We'll be camping in Yellow Pines. Due to the snow melt at higher elevations, some of Yellow Pines is a little under water. Ken has asked us to stay in the host site which is directly across from Site 'A' parking.

Sign Up: To sign up for this project, scroll to the bottom and fill out the form. I will send out an email on the Thursday prior to the project with detailed information as well as a gate pass to allow free entry into Yosemite.

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 Image Galleries.

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.
