Home to a small library and a number of exhibits, Yosemite Conservation Heritage Center offers historical and environmental information on Yosemite and the Sierra Mountains. A National Historic Landmark from 1903, the rustic, granite-wall lodge fits into the surrounding landscape--in the spirit of the 20th-century Arts and Crafts movement. Many of its features cater to kids, including the nature corner where children can play with stuffed animals, work on craft projects, draw, or read a book. To learn more about natural history, Native American music and storytelling, visit some of the free evening programs.
