Does Yosemite National Park hold a special place in your heart? If so, we want your help in creating a crowdsourced collection of photographs taken in this iconic Californian landmark!

To celebrate the broadcast of PBS Nature’s film Yosemite on March 29, we’re asking you to raid your camera roll and share your best photos of Yosemite with us on social media.  How: Just post your photo(s) to Twitter, Instagram or KQED’s Facebook Page with the hashtag #YosemiteSnap. We’d love it if you included details about who’s in your photo, and when and where it was taken in Yosemite.

We’ll be collecting photos to feature here on KQED Science, and reposting highlights to our social media channels!

About Yosemite from PBS Nature:
Yosemite Valley is a land forged in wildfire and sculpted by water, the delicate balance of these two elements are essential to the creatures and trees that call this land their home. But with climates changing and temperatures rising, the Sierras are under siege. Water is scarcer and the threat of fire is more common. Join scientists, experts, and adventurers as they trudge through mountains of snow, climb trees as tall as buildings, and soar high in the air to spy just how these global changes are affecting one of America’s greatest wildernesses. Watch Yosemite on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 8 pm on KQED 9 (repeated Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 2 am on KQED 9 and 11 am on KQED Plus.)
