In partnership with Yosemite National Park, the Oakdale Cowboy Museum is excited to join the celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act. The Grant Act, signed by President Lincoln in June of 1864, was for the protection of the Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove. These two special places, both in what is now Yosemite National Park, were the first resources in the world set aside for preservation thereby planting the seed for the idea of national parks.
