The safety of our visitors and staff at The Ansel Adams Gallery is of utmost importance.  During fire season, smoke can degrade the air quality in Yosemite. It can reduce visibility and poses health concerns for everybody, especially sensitive people. During this time our staff uses the AQI (air quality index) to determine if the air quality is at a safe level for our visitors and staff.

 Here is how the AQI level in Yosemite Valley affects The Ansel Adams Gallery:

150 AQI, we will close our outdoor operations. The staff will notify any photography education class students at least one hour prior to the start of class.

300 AQI, we will close outdoor and indoor operations.
