Our naturalist guide Paul made our program exceptional. His ability to connect with our three kids, ages 6-11, was fantastic. He was engaging during the entire four hours while exploring. Through stories, historical facts, observations in the environment and anecdotes of personal experiences, he enriched our entire weeklong day stay in the park. During the four hours we spent with him we felt confident that we learned so much more than the average person walking along the same trail. He highlighted so many details that we would have walked right by had he not been with us. The remaining six days we had to explore in the park were directly improved by our experience with him. Thank you to Paul, and thank you to Yosemite Conservancy for all the work you do to make Yosemite even more magical than it already is.
