Every year, the Conservancy funds numerous projects in Yosemite, including research, restoration and youth programs. Our diverse projects and programs create numerous philanthropic opportunities for foundations with varying giving strategies while ensuring that Yosemite is preserved and protected for generations to come. Our foundation partners have helped make a huge array of projects possible, from restoring Mariposa Grove to replacing the historic Wawona stagecoach.

To learn more about this year’s projects or to arrange a tour, please contact Laurie Peterson at lpeterson@yosemite.org or 415-434-8446 x328.
