Most of Yosemite — nearly 95 percent — is congressionally designated wilderness, the highest level of protection for public lands. For decades, donors have supported efforts to restore and protect the Yosemite Wilderness.
Keep It Wild youth and adult volunteers, including a five-week Student Conservation Association crew, work with park professionals to restore the wild character of Yosemite’s backcountry. While surveying thousands of acres, crews address notable human impacts, including inappropriate campsites and informal “social” trails that can cause erosion and other ecosystem damage. They also remove invasive flora that pose a threat to native plant and animal species. With your support in 2018, Keep It Wild will make park ecosystems more resilient and will give diverse volunteers hands-on restoration experience.
Your donation will help keep the “wild” in the Yosemite Wilderness while inspiring volunteers to become stewards of the natural world.
