Don’t miss out on an opportunity to connect with the Conservancy on your next Yosemite trip! Whether you want to try something new or enjoy your go-to activities, we look forward to helping you make the most of your time in the park.

Planning a late spring or summer trip? When Yosemite’s 2022 peak hours reservation system in effect (May 20-September 30), your Conservancy program registration (for an Outdoor AdventureCustom Adventure or art program) includes a Yosemite reservation for the duration of your program! If you plan to visit the park on days other than when your Conservancy program is scheduled, you’ll need to book a separate peak hours or overnight reservation (while the system is in place).

Browse our calendar to see what’s coming up on our schedule and find your next Yosemite experience!
