Experience Yosemite

Whether it’s your first or 100th visit to Yosemite, the Conservancy can help you make the most of your stay.

Conservancy programs — from nature walks to overnight backpacking treks to theater performances to art workshops — make your park visit even more special. And, because all the proceeds from our adventure programs, art workshops and visitor services go back into the park, you support Yosemite just by participating.

Custom Adventures
Discover all that Yosemite has to offer on a Custom Adventure. Explore Yosemite with an experienced Yosemite naturalist, photographer, or artist leading you every step of the way.

Quick Sketching in Watercolor
Autumn in Wawona is an artist’s delight, with stunning foliage colors and low-angled light. All ability levels are invited to join an award-winning artist during this three-day workshop, which includes sketching and watercolor technique.
The Day of the Woodpecker
Did you know there are 11 species of woodpeckers found in Yosemite — more than in any comparable area in the United States? Spend a day with an expert naturalist, not just watching these industrious birds, but learning about their diverse habitats and behaviors.


Every season offers a new opportunity — and the Conservancy has a new adventure. See what’s planned for your next visit.
