The Ansel Adams Gallery has modified our workshops to be functional in a covid environment and has reduced class sizes to protect participants and staff. With the recent surge from Omicron, we are making it our main priority for a safe environment for all of our workshop participants. Masks are required in all buildings in the park and our workshop room is fully equipped with an air filtration system.

The Gallery will provide the following:
COVID-19 rapid test upon arrival
Hand sanitizer
Sanitation wipes

The Ansel Adams Gallery requires all workshop participants to show proof of  the COVID-19 vaccination and have a molecular COVID test prior to their arrival in Yosemite National Park. 

Limited Services:
Since Covid, Yosemite has been experiencing limited food services in the Valley. We suggest bringing breakfast and snack food. The Valley does have a small grocery store, but the selection is limited especially for specialty food items.
