Please note that while Yosemite remains open during the federal government shutdown, services and facilities are very limited, and certain areas of the park are closed. For more information, please refer to the National Park Service and the Department of the Interior: visit www.nps.gov/yose and www.doi.gov/shutdown.

As the impact of the government shutdown continues to be felt, Yosemite Conservancy remains committed to supporting Yosemite National Park.

Donor Events

Donors of $25 or more to Yosemite Conservancy enjoy Spring Gathering every March with walks, inspiring presentations and special activities with park rangers and local experts. Donors making an annual gift of $1000 or more are recognized as members of the John Muir Heritage Society and receive additional invitations to special events and behind-the-scenes tours in Yosemite, as well as gatherings in Northern and Southern California.

Yosemite Conservancy secures a block of rooms for all events in the park and makes them available to event participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
