(AP) - Officials say Yosemite National Park will add 400 acres of meadows and forest in its largest expansion in nearly 70 years.

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.
