You Can Help Yosemite

As a donor to Yosemite Conservancy, you help preserve the park for future generations.

Your gift today makes a lasting difference for Yosemite’s trails, habitat, wildlife and much more. And by participating in our outdoor programs, art workshops, theater performances and volunteer opportunities, you are giving back to the park you love.

Your gifts to the Yosemite Conservancy help Yosemite National Park to study and protect animals in their wild habitats, from high peaks where bighorns are making a comeback, to old-growth forests where spotted owls nest.
