Visitor Services

Yosemite's WildLink programs connect youth to nature in a national park — and in their own neighborhoods.

Visitor Services

People from around the world visit Yosemite to hike, camp, climb, take in the storied scenery and reconnect with the natural world. Conservancy donors help ensure diverse park visitors can access, experience and enjoy Yosemite’s wonders. This year, your gifts can help underrepresented groups connect with wilderness, inspire kids and teens to become stewards of public lands, support efforts to improve visitor flow in the Valley, and more.  

Researchers will assess opportunities to improve visitor access in Yosemite’s most iconic locations.
