KCBS_740 YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK (AP) — Officials say Yosemite National Park will add 400 acres of meadows, forest in the park’s largest expansion in decades.

The officials said Wednesday the Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit conservation group, bought the land from private owners for $2.3 million and donated it to Yosemite.

Park Superintendent Don Neubacher says the land on the western boundary will be preserved as habitat for protected wildlife.
