Yosemite’s first residents were Native Americans who may have first inhabited the region as many as 10,000 years ago. Yosemite National Park was created in 1890, largely due to the efforts of writer and naturalist John Muir. On October 1, 1890, the U.S. Congress set aside more than 1,500 square miles of reserved forest lands, soon to be known as Yosemite National Park. Many species of native wildflowers and trees can be found in Yosemite. Trees include the Giant Sequoia, which can live up to 3,000 years and are considered to be the largest living thing on the planet. It is also home to several animal species, some of which have been saved from extinction. Bighorn sheep, golden eagles and peregrine falcons are just some of the creatures that have comfortably increased their numbers. There are between 300 to 500 black bears.
