Yosemite National Park: Rules, crackdown reduce bear problems.

Contrary to legend, rangers have found it possible to infuse brainpower in summer tourists in Yosemite National Park.

The numbers this week show that bear incidents are down 99 percent in 20 years at Yosemite, from a peak of 1,500 in 1997 to a low this year of three. In 2018, they verified only 22 incidents for the year.

Campgrounds at Yosemite National Park Closed Due to Human Waste Along Roadways During Government Shutdown.

Yosemite National Park visitors using the side of the road as a toilet have prompted the park to close two campgrounds and a popular redwood grove for public-safety reasons.

The park‘s restrooms and visitor centers have been closed and trash collection suspended since the partial federal government shutdown began Dec. 22, but the park itself remains open.
