Meet our Welcoming Committee, a cast of characters that among many things have been known to act like animals!  They are our ambassadors and guides for all you can see and do in the Southern Yosemite Region.  Come meet them and join them on a journey that takes you from the farmlands of the San Joaquin Valley up into the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite National Park. Click the box below to find where each of the committee members, and their trading cards, can be found.

Our Welcoming Committee has been known to act like animals and you can usually find this wild bunch along the Fossils to Falls Road Trip, but you can also find them digitally. Share this interesting collection of birds, mammals, plants, and insects that are a key part of this beautiful region of the world with your little ones. Click below to download this set of free puzzles and paper doll crafts while learning about Yosemite, and so much more!
