About Yosemite Conservancy

Thanks to your support, we provide grants to Yosemite National Park based on the highest-priority needs of the park. Your dedication has funded the restoration of the trail to Lower Yosemite Fall, electronic bear-monitoring equipment to keep bears safe, life-changing youth programs and so much more.

What We Do

Your gifts to Yosemite Conservancy fund projects and programs that are essential to Yosemite’s future:

  • Trails, Wildlife and Habitat: We fund trail and habitat restoration projects, wildlife-protection programs, scientific research and more to preserve and protect Yosemite’s natural wonders and enrich the visitor experience
  • Youth in Yosemite Programs: Thanks to your support, these programs transform the lives of youth of all ages, while youth help transform the park

There are many ways to get involved:

  • Join us in providing for the future of Yosemite by making a gift to Yosemite Conservancy today. Your gifts help fund trail and habitat restoration, youth programs, wildlife conservation and more
  • Your donation also gives you access to discounts on programs, accommodations and invitations to special events
  • Our Outdoor Adventures include activities such as hiking, bird-watching and snowshoeing. Workshops are open to all visitors and are led by experienced naturalists
  • Join an art workshop, or enjoy a live theater performance to experience a deeper connection to Yosemite
  • You can also get involved by volunteering, spending the summer in the park helping visitors or restoring habitat
  • When you shop in Conservancy bookstores or on our online store, proceeds go back into essential park projects
