Pending the predicted rain and possible snow storms on Wednesday, November 28, fire managers will resume pile burning within the communities of El Portal and Foresta. The storms will provide an opportunity to burn piles built this year by Yosemite and CAL FIRE crews. The planned burning are a part of ongoing projects aimed at community fire protection and defensible space. If questions arise please email us or call 375-9574.

In Wawona and downstream, the South Fork Merced River provides habitat for a rare plant, the Sierra sweet bay (Myrica hartwegii). This special status shrub is found in only five Sierra Nevada counties. In Yosemite, it occurs exclusively on sand bars and river banks along the South Fork Merced River downstream from Wawona and on Big Creek.
