I would be really interested in organizing a National Parks Mapping  
Party event. It would be great to have them going on throughout the US  
during the summer months. Does anyone have contacts with NPS staff? It  
would be ideal to get on their programs,. Maybe have group hikes that  
are mapping?

I live in the Bay Area, and would volunteer to organize a Yosemite  
Trip for last August/early September. OSM at Yosemite could use some  
work (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=37.85&lon=-119.568&zoom=10&layers=B000FTF 
) I have never been out there, so send advice if you are interested  
and want to help me in planning.

If Yosemite is a bit too far for bay area folks, we could start with a  
focus on Point Reyes (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=37.997&lon=-122.705&zoom=11&layers=B000FTF
