Yosemite National Park in Mariposa County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Reawakening the Meadow
Seeds of Change
A century of trash once lay buried beneath this meadow’s surface, obstructing water flow and preventing plant growth. In 1993, restoration crews using excavators dug up and removed the debris. The water essential to maintain a healthy meadow returned, and seeds that had lain dormant for nearly a century came back to life.
Erected by Yosemite Fund.
