Partners

Yosemite Conservancy has 90 years of experience helping to preserve and protect Yosemite National Park for current and future generations. We are proud to have strong working relationships with extraordinary partner organizations that share a similar passion for this magical place.

How We Work with Our Partners

Funding

The most significant collaboration, and also the core of our fundraising, is direct donations to National Park Service (NPS). Each year, Yosemite Conservancy and NPS together identify projects of greatest need that are aligned with our mission; these projects are then funded through donations from our generous supporters.

Visitor Services

We partner with NPS to work on restoration projects and visitor services, including issuing wilderness permits and bear-proof canisters.

Arts

We partner with NPS, Delaware North Companies (DNC), the Ansel Adams Gallery and the LeConte Memorial Lodge to promote Arts in Yosemite Park.

Guest Programs

Working with NPS and DNC, which provide accommodations throughout the park, we created the guest donor program, allowing visitors to make donations to programs at DNC facilities.

Sharing Resources

Working with NatureBridge, we share resources such as housing and training. We also exchange resources such as books for libraries.

 

The National Park Service

Since 1916, the American people have entrusted the National Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the help of volunteers and park partners, we are proud to safeguard these nearly 400 places and to share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year.
