John Muir Heritage Society

The John Muir Heritage Society is a community of generous supporters with a strong commitment to protecting and preserving Yosemite for future generations. With your annual gift of $1,000 or more, you join a special group of donors who share your passion for the park. Support at this level has tremendous impact, and your leadership gifts enable Yosemite Conservancy to truly make a difference in the park.

Society members receive invitations to exclusive events throughout the year, both in and outside the park. At these gatherings, members have the opportunity to meet with park management and experts to gain an insider’s perspective on Yosemite.

JMHS membership and donor levels are based on cumulative giving during a calendar year.

Donors at the John Muir Heritage Society Guardian level and above are also recognized each year on the Honor Wall at the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center.
