Whether you’re coming to Yosemite for the first time or are back for your fiftieth annual trip, you can benefit from the visitor services and educational programs our donors support in the park. Preventive Search and Rescue volunteers and signs share safety messages at busy trailheads. Seasonal climber stewards teach people about climbing history, geology and gear — and about taking care of the vertical environment. The Yosemite Bike Share lets visitors pedal around the Valley instead of getting in their cars.

Keep an eye out for Conservancy-supported activities and resources on your next Yosemite visit! And in the meantime, check out some of the many ways our donors have helped enhance visitor experiences over the years.
