Annual Yosemite Facelift: September

Yosemite Facelift 2020: Act Local

We want YOU to take the message of Yosemite Facelift to your home town. The objective of Yosemite Facelift 2020: Act Local is for you to pick up litter and engage in service projects in your local parks, safely. This year, we want the thousands of Yosemite Facelift Volunteers that flock to the park every year to pick up trash closer to home, while following local guidelines for social distancing and minimizing the risk of spreading COVID-19. Take photos, do your part, and tag your posts with #YosemiteFaceliftActLocal.

In partnership with the Yosemite Climbing Association, the National Park Service puts on this five-day event each September, Wednesday through Sunday including the last Saturday of the month. In 2019 over 1,500 volunteers cleaned up 16,429 pounds of debris from the park. To learn more, visit our partners at the Yosemite Climbing Association.
