LIVING IN A NATIONAL PARK IS AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE AND A PRIVILEGE.

PLEASE RESPECT AND APPRECIATE YOSEMITE’S WILD PLACES AND THEIR INHABITANTS
BY DOING THE FOLLOWING:

  • Store food properly to prevent bears and other wildlife from obtaining unnatural food.

  • Do not feed wildlife (including birds) or disturb wildlife by approaching too closely (typically 50 yards).

  • Avoid damaging live trees and plants; do not pick wildflowers.

  • Do not plant or transport the seeds of non-native plants in Yosemite. The Division of Resources Management and Science is actively trying to control or eradicate non-native invasive plant species from Yosemite.

  • Minimize use and impact from fires.

  • Do not bring firewood from outside the area into the park. This is to protect Yosemite from pathogens, such as Sudden Oak Death, and from the introduction of insect infestations.

  • Leave natural objects and cultural artifacts for others to enjoy.

  • Drive the speed limit and pay attention while driving on park roads to reduce the chances of injuring wildlife.
