Yosemite Conservation Heritage Center, Yosemite National Park

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.

  • We stopped here on the second car ride along the south Dr, intrigued especially by the type of construction and shape. The late hour did not allow us to go further, however it is curious and in a location from which you can see how impressive is the rock wall around as well as the beauty of the surrounding area.

  • I found this place to be so beautiful. Like most everything here in Yosemite, this place feels like it has been here forever. One of my favorite structures in the valley.
  • Full of info very nice ppl, the building was moved brick by brick and built where it stands now.
