Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles are deep valleys, grand meadows, and ancient giant sequoias. It was first established as a national site on October 1, 1890. To learn more about the park without leaving the classroom, take advantage of the interactive classroom provided by the National Park Service.
