Yosemite National Park has always been a place of special significance to the Sierra Club. When the Sierra Club began in 1892, its first order of business was to defeat a proposal to reduce the boundaries of Yosemite Park. The Club’s efforts helped transition the park from state to federal management, ensuring full protection for Yosemite as a National Park.
In 1904, the LeConte Memorial Lodge was built by the Sierra Club and today still serves as an educational resource for the public, by providing information about the Park and increasing awareness of environmental issues.
