Working in partnership with the National Park Service and Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts at Yosemite, the Yosemite Falls webcam is the fourth supported by the Conservancy and the first to offer a view of a Yosemite waterfall. The other Yosemite Conservancy webcams feature spectacular views of Yosemite landscapes, including Half Dome, El Capitan and the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

"The webcams provide windows into Yosemite for people to plan a visit and to be inspired about the need to preserve and protect one of the world's most unique places," said Mike Tollefson, Yosemite Conservancy President. "This technology makes the park's incredible scenery accessible to anyone, anywhere and at any time. What could be better than starting your day by viewing Yosemite Falls?"

Tollefson said that technology allows more people than ever to connect with the park in new and different ways. More than 400,000 people have viewed the webcams annually since 2009. "We added the Yosemite Falls webcam in response to the public's request for live images of this iconic setting," he said.

Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher said, "Technology is providing new ways to connect people to Yosemite, help visitors to plan trips and learn about the park. All of this improves the visitor experience."

Millions have viewed the Yosemite Nature Notes online video series, which provides breathtaking and in-depth interpretive programs about Half Dome, Rockfalls and Wildflowers among its 17 episodes. So far, four million have viewed the Frazil Ice episode on YouTube and nearly a half million people have enjoyed another about rainbows seen at night on waterfalls called "moonbows." Podcasts are helping visitors plan trips, and learn about culture, nature and history.
