Victory: Yosemite keeps historic names
Thanks in part to more than 143,000 CREDO members who signed our petition, the names of historic locations at Yosemite National Park will be restored to their well-known names, including the Wawona Hotel, Curry Village, the Ahwahnee Hotel and Badger Pass.
Jeremy Jacobs, a billionaire Trump donor and the chairman of the concessions company Delaware North that recently lost its $2 billion contract in Yosemite, sued the NPS for tens of millions of dollars to turn over naming rights of two iconic landmarks in the park, the Wawona and Ahwahnee Hotels. The NPS recently settled the lawsuit that restored the original names to these historic locations.
Thank you to CREDO members like you who stood up for these beloved American landmarks.
