"How - and why - Yosemite changed America" by Dr. Craig Jones, University of Colorado, Boulder

The national park concept first appeared in 1864 in Yosemite. Was this because Yosemite just happened to be the first large glacial gorge in the Sierra to gain national attention? Or is Yosemite in fact special, and if so, why? This talk will examine Yosemite’s influence in shaping American culture, and derives from Dr. Jones’ new book “The mountains that remade America: Science, society, and the Sierra Nevada”.

The Forum will take place Tuesday, October 10th from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in the Yosemite Valley Auditorium.
