In celebration of Veterans Day, Yosemite National Park will offer free admission on Friday, November 11 through Sunday, November 13, 2011. This fee free weekend is offered to all visitors in honor of current and retired members of the United States armed forces and their families.  

This fee free weekend has been observed since 2006. Waiving entrance fee waivers to all public lands on Veterans Day and Veterans Day Weekend is one way to show appreciate for the millions of men and women who fight to keep America's public lands accessible to all Americans.  

Fees being waived for Veterans Day Weekend include the fees associated with entrance into the park only. All other fees associated with camping, lodging, or activities within the park are not waived. The fee waiver is good for Friday, November 11, through Sunday, November 13, 2011 only.

Upper Merced Watershed

The Merced River above Nevada Fall and South Fork Merced River above Wawona, numerous small meadows and adjacent riparian habitats occur. Owing their existence to the river and its annual flooding, these habitats help support eight special status animal species: harlequin ducks, black swifts, bald eagles, osprey, willow flycatchers, yellow warbler, western red bat, and Sierra Nevada mountain beaver.
