Putting the "natural" in Naturalization?

Yosemite National Park
Thirty two people will become naturalized United States citizens at Yosemite’s famous overlook
on Thursday. This date celebrates the ratification of the U.S. Constitution on September 17,

National Park Service (NPS) to enhance the meaning and stature of naturalization ceremonies.
There is an enduring connection between the American people and the national parks and these
beautiful sites provide a perfect backdrop for naturalization ceremonies.

Newly naturalized U.S. citizens and their families
