Our greatest environmental success probably came in the late 1960's and 70's when the Sierra Club and other organizations stopped the ill-advised skiiing village development for Mineral King Valley. In 1978 Mineral King was added to Sequoia National Park. Although many challenges remain, it is important to reflect on some of our successes over the years:
- Sequoia National Park Management Plan - revised to prevent new parking lots in pristine areas.
- Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park is now a prime place to see the Sequoia trees - instead of cars, cabins, gas stations and restaurants, which have been relocated outside the Sequoia zone.
