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.
