Helping Yosemite’s Visitors and Protecting Resources

Whether greeting visitors and answering their questions or restoring meadows and eradicating invasive species, as a Yosemite Conservancy volunteer you will make a difference in the park.

Without the efforts of our committed volunteers, many of the park’s work projects would not get done and over 400,000 visitors would not be assisted, due to the budget constraints of the National Park Service.

Ways to Volunteer

Our volunteers experience the privilege of serving in a world heritage site while participating in work projects for a week or assisting visitors with park information for a month.  You can find out how to take part in these exceptional opportunities by reading about the Work Week Volunteer Program and the Visitor Information Program. At this point in time, Yosemite Conservancy’s work weeks and weekends are filled and closed.

To explore options for Corporate Group Work Weekends, please contact Kim Coull at (415) 434-8446 x324 or kcoull@yosemiteconservancy.org.
