I was recently hired to document the weekend of an important event, the Yosemite Facelift. This gathering is focused on a collaborative clean up of Yosemite National Park. Altogether, hundreds of volunteers, from all walks of life, teamed up to pack thousands of pounds of trash out of every nook and cranny in the park.
This film highlights an interview with the founder of Facelift, Ken Yager. Ken is also the president of the Yosemite Climbing Association. He talks about his first trip to the park and how special this annual event has become for many people. He shares that the program has now cleaned up over 1 million pounds of trash since its inception.
Stewardship is an important aspect of outdoor recreation and at Pure Project they want to encourage everyone to leave our wild places better than we found them.
