Your Support Makes An Impact


f you've visited Yosemite, you've experienced our work. From the installation of bear-proof food lockers in Valley campgrounds to the restoration of miles of trail in the high country, the work we do to preserve and protect Yosemite's natural wonders and enrich the visitor experience is everywhere.

Art and theater programs, Outdoor Adventures, bookstores, volunteers and wilderness support services provide visitors with more opportunities to connect with Yosemite on a deeper level.

In 2011, we funded 56 projects throughout the park, including restoration of 55 miles of trail and 40 acres of meadow. From Yosemite Valley to Wawona to the high country, our work is making a big difference in restoring natural ecosystems, protecting wildlife, and improving the visitor experience.
