Yosemite helped inspire the national park idea in the United States and globally. Today, parks around the world look to Yosemite as a powerful example of top-notch resource stewardship, cultural preservation and visitor services.

With your support, Yosemite will continue to stand out as a global leader, while strengthening relationships with “sister parks” around the world. In 2017, through conversations and workshops with park representatives from countries such as Japan, Chile and Argentina, Yosemite staff shared technical expertise and discussed ideas for addressing shared challenges, such as the impacts of high visitation and climate change.

Your gifts supported Yosemite’s efforts to engage with the global park community and inspire stewardship around the world.
