An insider's look at what's happening in the park
— and how our donors are making a difference.

Yosemite Conservancy donors are funding 34 new grants to the park in 2017, including support for wildlife management, habitat restoration, the Ask a Climber program, new tents for Search and Rescue volunteers, and much more.

Last week, we shared a year in review ... now it's time to look ahead. Here's our year in preview! Take a tour through some of the 34 new grants our donors are supporting in 2017.

What to do when snowflakes (and temperatures) start falling in Yosemite? Read our staff picks for winter activities in the park, and then bundle up and start exploring!

Happy New Year! Before we get too far into 2017, we're pausing to look back and count up some of the many ways our donors supported  Yosemite last year.

A little lyrical fun to close out 2016. Thank you for supporting Yosemite this year!
