2015 Yosemite Facelift: Finding Beauty Behind the Trash

Yosemite Facelift is about showing our commitment to this important place and the experiences we have as a result of this place.

What an incredible opportunity it is to be a part of a community willing to dedicate their time to preserving that experience for others.
