#Yosemite150!  The first legislation to protect California’s Yosemite Valley, the Yosemite Land Grant, was signed on June 30, 1864 by Abraham Lincoln.  Galen Clark - an early champion of Yosemite Valley and the Giant Sequoias of Mariposa Grove - was instrumental in creating the legislation and later served as one of the park’s first guardians.  (He is just barely visible at the base of this massive Sequoia tree)
