What makes Yosemite so special? What's at the heart of this treasured place? To find the answer, you don't have to trek to a specific latitude and longitude. You'll find it everywhere you look: in granite peaks and glimmering lakes, in birds flying among ancient trees, and in thousands of years of human history. Join us for a journey through some of the projects our donors have funded that help preserve the heart of the park.
Human stories are woven deep into Yosemite's tapestry of natural wonders. From the Valley to the high country, artifacts from thousands of years ago hold clues to the lives lived among the lakes, meadows and forests. In 2017, two archeology interns helped sift back through layers of time to learn about and protect that past.
We rung in the new year with a fresh crop of grants for Yosemite National Park. In 2018, your gifts will help fund new trails, cutting-edge research, inspiring educational programs, and much more. Take a peek at the year ahead!
