Celebrate Yosemite’s 125th Anniversary

Introducing the Yosemite National Park 125th Anniversary Limited Edition WPA-style poster.

Now you can enjoy Yosemite every day with this modern-day WPA-style 13″ x 19″ poster, printed on “Conservation” — a 100% recycled, domestically-produced paper stock, with soy based inks, and are printed by one of the “greenest” printers in the nation!

This is a one-of-a-kind offering — and these Limited Edition Prints — in celebration of Yosemite’s 125th Anniversary are signed, dated & numbered. The poster includes a customized seal with “125th Anniversary” and “1890 – 2015″ making it unique from the other posters in The National Park Poster Project Collection.

The Yosemite National Park 125th Anniversary Limited Edition Poster is an original work created and signed by the artist, Robert B. Decker and commemorates the 125th anniversary of the establishment of the park on October 1, 1890.

There are a limited number of prints available, and when they are gone, this poster will never be re-printed!

Yosemite National Park 125th Anniversary Edition

The original “Tunnel View” photograph was taken by Robert B. Decker. The poster is created in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), when — in the 1930s and 1940s — the Federal Government commissioned hundreds of artists to create thousands of poster designs for public exhibits, community activities, theatrical productions, health, safety and educational programs, nature and travel. By the end of the WPA era, only 26 National Parks had been established and only 14 parks had posters created for them.

Photographer and graphic artist, Robert B. Decker, studied photography with Ansel Adams in the summer of 1979 in Yosemite National Park when he was just 19…an experience that solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all 59 major national parks in time for the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016.

Labor Day, The National Parks and “Every Kid in a Park”

The National Park Service’s Centennial is being celebrated in 2016, and families with kids in fourth grade for the 2015-2016 school year can get free admission to all parks for a full year.

If you have a child in fourth grade this year, now’s the time to visit one or more national parks. The National Park Service has launched a special initiative for the 100th Anniversary to help engage and attract children and families to our national parks and the great outdoors. It is called Every Kid in a Park. Starting September 1, 2015, all fourth graders in America are entitled to a free Every Kid in a Park Pass, which grants free admission for one’s familyto all U.S. national parks, forests, monuments, and wildlife refuges — that’s 408 different places you could visit in the next 12 months!

Click here for information about how to order an Every Kid in a Park pass.

This pass is a tremendous value, since parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite each charge a $30 entrance fee for visitors with a car. The pass is valid for an entire year, starting September 1, 2015, and lasting through August 31, 2016. It’s the equivalent of the National Park Service America the Beautiful annual pass, which costs $80.

If you’re not lucky enough to have a child in fourth grade, the American the Beautiful annual pass is still an excellent value and I encourage you all to get out and enjoy and celebrate America’s Best Idea.

What’s Next at National Park Posters?

One of the greatest things about living in Colorado is the proximity to so many National Parks — 18 within a 10 hour drive. I’m heading to South Dakota next week to visit Badlands National Park and Wind Cave National Park. Time and weather permitted, I may try to get to some of other sites in South Dakota, too…Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Buffalo Gap National Grassland & Black Hills National Forest…to name a few.

October brings Great Smoky and Shenandoah National Parks into view…and I hope to time things right with the Fall colors. I’ll keep you posted as the time draws closer.
