The Yosemite Climbing Association (YCA) is proud to announce that in addition to Facelift: Act Local, Yosemite Facelift will be back in-person again this year, September 21-25, 2022. YCA can’t wait to celebrate the history and culture of Yosemite National Park climbing. This will be their 19th gathering to “steward with love” and share the “Yosemite Power.” Many participants are surprised to learn how fun it is to pick up trash in Yosemite. It’s one thing to visit the Valley and take pictures of the scenery, but joining Facelift’s efforts connects people to the Valley as stewards, not just as tourists. Join in the largest cleanup of a national park! To register for the in-person event, visit yosemiteclimbing.org.
Over the past eighteen years, Yosemite Facelift has attracted thousands of volunteers to get involved in the preservation of this national park gem. To date, YCA volunteers have collected over one million pounds of trash from the park.
Facelift: Act Local
Although the pandemic didn’t allow for an in-person event in 2020 and 2021, Facelift: Act Local inspired volunteers to get out and pick up trash in their local parks and other areas. Over 1,000 virtual volunteers pitched in and brought stewardship into communities across the US and internationally.
This year, YCA and existing groups will be launching Facelift: Act Local events in 10 new locations, including Salt Lake City (UT), Joshua Tree and Mammoth Lakes (CA), and Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park (CO). Everyone is invited to create a Facelift: Act Local event in parks, open spaces, towns, and cities everywhere.
Come volunteer for an hour or everyday; any amount of time you can spend volunteering is appreciated.
Facelift: Act Local 2022 is made possible by the generous support and belief of The North Face, CLIF Bar, Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co, Pure Project Brewing, Kodiak Cakes, Black Diamond Equipment, COROS, and American Alpine Club.
Yosemite Climbing Museum is open for the summer 7 days a week in Mariposa, CA from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. They are supported by and collaborate with the Mariposa County Board of Tourism and Yosemite National Park.
