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.

Work Week Crews

Work Week Crews

Work Week Crews volunteer their time to help preserve and protect Yosemite

 

Protecting the Park for Future Generations

Join a dedicated community of Yosemite enthusiasts, as you work together to preserve and protect the park. Our elite work crews are led by National Park Service rangers, in cooperation with Yosemite Conservancy and Yosemite Hospitality, LLC, improving habitats throughout the park. 

 

Work Crews

Projects have varying fitness levels, often requiring physically demanding work. Crews of up to 15 volunteers share a group campsite and are provided with three hearty meals a day, as well as a commemorative T-shirt. Participants generally work 4 days per week, with a day off mid-week. Due to the program’s popularity, we often receive more applicants than we can accommodate.

 

Work Week Fee

There is a $325 fee to help cover the cost of the program.

Yosemite is a dynamic place with unpredictable weather and natural conditions. While work week projects are planned to accomplish specific goals, they could be modified or cancelled by the National Park Service at any time.
