Never ending mail causes carriers to go postal. Never ending isolation causes teachers to go coral. Gotta get out! 🤪😂

Beginning Friday, May 20, 2022, Yosemite National Park will implement a temporary peak-hours reservation system. Building on lessons learned during the summer reservation systems in 2020 and 2021, the peak hours reservation system is designed to spread visitation out and reduce chronic congestion in the park. The reservation requirement will be in place through September 30, 2022.

Park visitors will need a reservation to enter the park between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. seven days per week (this includes people passing through the park). Visitors entering the park outside of the peak hours are not required to have a reservation.

Visit go.nps.gov/faq for more information.

Today my state California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom conference box of materials arrived in the mail.

This year it’s online which made me wonder if I’d be able to sit through another several hours of Zoom, but the program looks fun.

I’m especially excited about the live cooking demo scheduled for Friday evening with the Mulvaneys of Sacramento’s fine dining establishment by the same name. We have a shopping list to prepare for our lesson in making tomato sauce.

There’s also workshops on things like building victory gardens during a pandemic, creating a bitmoji agriculture classrooms, and a virtual tour of a lemon packing plant.

Want to join us for the free conference? Register at Learnaboutag.org/conference. Conference is Friday afternoon and evening, Sept. 25, and Saturday until 2 pm, Sept. 26.
