Yosemite, CA — Yosemite Falls, North America’s highest waterfall, can be viewed online with Yosemite Conservancy’s new webcam.
Yosemite Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that also provides webcams that feature 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.
Tollefson says, “We added the Yosemite Falls webcam in response to the public’s request for live images of this iconic setting.”
Tollefson noted that “More than 400,000 people viewed the webcams each year since 2009.”
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.”
Yosemite Conservancy, working in partnership with the National Park Service and Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts at Yosemite, also offer podcasts and videos available online.
Millions have viewed the Yosemite Nature Notes online video series, which provides 17 in-depth interpretive 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.” Different Podcasts also help visitors plan trips, and learn about culture, nature and history.
