Yosemite Conservancy’s corporate work projects provide an inspirational backdrop for employees to work together on projects crucial to Yosemite’s future. Many of these projects include unique opportunities for donor recognition while informing park visitors about the work being done. This enriching volunteer experience expands corporate visibility and sustainability awareness, contributes to team building, and instills company pride in making a substantial difference in the park.

Corporations that contribute at least $25,000 annually to Yosemite Conservancy can select a group of 25 employees to participate in a work weekend in the park. The group works shoulder-to-shoulder with National Park Service personnel on one of the Conservancy funded restoration or rehabilitation projects.

Teams of corporate volunteers join in exceptional chuck-wagon-style meals in a communal camp setting.  Evenings are spent at picnic tables under the stars or around a campfire gaining inside information from high-level National Park Service personnel.  Free time is spent exploring the park in small groups.
