Sequoia & Kings Canyon Report Unhealthy Air Quality

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks report

Thinking of coming to Sequoia and Kings Canyon soon? Due to the fires throughout California, the air quality in these parks has been consistently rated as unhealthy for everyone over the last several weeks. Exposure can lead to health risks, especially for those in at-risk groups. Unfortunately, the air quality is unlikely to improve until the fires are contained. The first photo shows what the air looked like from Giant Forest webcam on 8/26. In the second photo you can compare a clear day and a day with poor air quality. Did you notice that current conditions are even worse than a typical bad visibility day?
If you plan on visiting, and wonder what current conditions are like, we recommend checking the air quality in real time through our online webcam located at Giant Forest: https://www.nps.gov/subjects/air/webcams.htm?site=seki
