We helped expand Yosemite.

In 2013, Environment California worked to protect a 1,600-acre wildlife corridor that connects Yosemite National Park to the Sierra National Forest. More than 10,000 Californians signed petitions, and the State Legislature unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to expand Yosemite. In March, Environment California went to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office in D.C. to the deliver the petitions, and she sponsored a Yosemite expansion bill one month later.

Meanwhile, we helped deliver more than 12,000 petitions calling on the California Air Resources Board to increase the number of emission-free vehicles on the road.
