Experience Yosemite With a Naturalist

Join our naturalists for guided programs in Yosemite this spring!

  • When: Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, through at least June 15. (Check back in June for details on future naturalist walks.)
  • Where: Yosemite Valley
  • What: Experience the beauty of springtime in the Sierra Nevada while you explore Yosemite Valley! Some programs focus on a specific topic, including birding, nature journaling, history and astronomy.
  • Registration fee: $10–$25/person (see program details below). Please register in advance!

Yosemite entrance reservations: Registration for our naturalist walks does not include a park entrance reservation or the $35/vehicle gate fee. While Yosemite’s temporary reservation system is in place (May 21-September 30, or until local public health conditions improve), you’ll need to make a separate day-use reservation (via Recreation.gov) or overnight reservation (for camping or lodging in Yosemite) in order to enter the park. See the Yosemite National Park site for details and FAQs about the reservation system.

COVID-19: We have implemented special safety measures to keep participants and instructors safe during the ongoing pandemic. Please review our COVID-19 procedures for details.
