Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 85 (Home of the Sierra Club)

The Yosemite Conservation Heritage CenterThe Yosemite Conservation Heritage Center – Hone of the Sierra Club

“The Yosemite Conservation Heritage Center (formerly LeConte Memorial Lodge), National Historic Landmark, was built by Sierra Club volunteers in 1903-04.

The Sierra Club still operates the iconic structure as a public education and visitor center ever since, presenting and promoting the conservation ethic through public programs, educational displays, a library, and interactive programs for kids and families.” https://sierraclub.org/yosemite-heritage-center/about-us

Interestingly enough, as noted in an earlier post, the building had been moved. In speaking with volunteers, it was mentioned that the roof line does not fit as exact as desired so there are some gaps and appropriate accommodations that need to be made.

To see a nice photograph of the beautiful stone building from the outside, see former YOY post HERE!
