Yosemite National Park Celebrates the 9th Annual Volunteer of the Year Awards

Yosemite, CA...Yosemite National Park is proud to announce the 2018 recipients of the park’s Volunteer of the Year awards. These prestigious awards are bestowed annually to outstanding volunteers in nine different categories for exemplary service to Yosemite National Park. In 2017, Yosemite National Park hosted over 10,734 volunteers who donated over 139,500 hours to help with a wide variety of volunteer projects. This annual award ceremony is held each year as part of Yosemite’s celebration of National Public Lands Day, and in conjunction with the Yosemite Facelift park-wide cleanup event.





These awards were presented in person at a special awards ceremony in Yosemite Valley on September 29, 2018.

The 2018 Award Recipients are:

Doug Simmons, Preventive Search and Rescue, Individual Volunteer of the Year

Emily Wilson, Yosemite Archives, Individual Youth Volunteer of the Year

Kathy Hopkins, Yosemite Conservancy, Enduring Volunteer of the Year

Carmel Middle School, Volunteer Group of the Year

Golden Gate LINC Program, Youth Volunteer Group of the Year

Katie Patrick, Yosemite Bear Management, Volunteer Supervisor of the Year

Vegetation and Ecological Restoration, Yosemite Volunteer Program of the Year

Sam Webster, NatureBridge Service Instructor of the Year

Harrison Hood, Facelift Volunteer of the Year

This award ceremony was held in conjunction with the 15th annual Yosemite Facelift, a park-wide clean up event. This year, over 2,000 volunteers, including over 400 youth volunteers, came to Yosemite and provided over 11,000 hours to help clean up trash throughout the park. Over 14,000 pounds of trash was cleaned up from Yosemite National Park. We thank the Yosemite Climbing Association, Yosemite Conservancy, and all of our volunteers for coming out and helping with this great event.

    mike saved me from a tiger and merita voted no in tiger protection so IM VOTING FOR MIKE!

    did u know he also knows karate? Merita doesnt.

    Mikey helped my neighbor get his trash changed from Monday to Thursday? Except my friend really wanted the reverse but Mikey told him Cal-Waste will work on it after he gets them a rate increase.

    in his free time, he sits on 187 committees locally, statewide, and nationally. MERITA DOES NOT! she only sits on a few boards!

    He partnered with District 5 to get our fox problem taken care of, even flew to Tennessee to secure funding!

    all of this while GETTING A BRAND NEW, HIGHLY EFFICIENT BRIDGE FOR THE MOOSE LODGE!

    Yayyyyyy VOTE MIKE ON JULY 5th 2019!!!!!

Michael did this while serving on the most committee of any supervisor (14), helping to grow new businesses in District 3 despite Planned Development hurdles and obstacles, and then working to remove PD.

He is working to streamline the processes to repair/replace bridges, obtained much-needed State and Federal dollars to assist residents afflicted with Tree Mortality.

Heck! We even have more fun festivals and a Christmas Parade, which he championed. There's so much more he's done in just 3.75 years. Thanks Mike!

    Bold TextYes thank you Mike. I know I don't live in your district but I am in full support of you. I see a lot of derogatory statements about you and really don't care much for them. My mom and dad (deceased) moved to your district back in the early 70s. I'm sure they would have supported you too. Mom and Dad did a lot of volunteer work in their retired lives (my dad was only up here for about 11 years or so til he died in the mid 80's). They drove around for meals on wheels-all times of the year; docents at Big Trees Park working on the original Braille trail, AAUW, and other things. I remember when AAUW sponsored the October Fest in Murphys when it was down there. I don't know who sponsors that now. Mom and Dad knew a lot of people from some of the original families around here-Tryons and Airolas, etc., and other long time families like the Mollets, Parisottos, Whipples, Bullock Construction, and others. Back then there was a lot of integrity in this county and people had respect for other people's opinions without any type of "mudslinging" going on like now. It really gets crazy sometimes. The "Old School" ethics seem to be fading away and there seems to be a moral breakdown locally, statewide, and nationwide. We all need to get back on the right track-especially changing these lax laws like these new state laws. We need to roll up our sleeves and "crack the whip." I suppose we have to accept the things we cannot change, but we as citizens-can have the COURAGE to change the things that we can. Voting has a lot to do with it so voters get out and VOTE. It's your given right as citizens. Thank You.

      Michael helped the Bear Claw Bakery open its doors! And Soapworks! And CJ's! All of this without the "hurdles" of Planned Development. Golly Gee!

        He did not get rid of planned development and that makes me so very sad. So so sad. He promised me.
