Yosemite Conservancy is seeking volunteers for 30-day stays in Yosemite National Park from May through September to help visitors enjoy the park’s natural, cultural and educational activities.

“Volunteering with the Conservancy is a unique way to deepen personal connections to the park,” said Yosemite Conservancy Volunteer Program Manager Mark Marschall. “Our volunteers do an amazing job helping visitors from around the world enjoy their experience in Yosemite.”

The Conservancy’s visitor information assistants spend a month in the park volunteering 32 hours per week and camping at sites in Yosemite Valley, Wawona or Tuolumne Meadows. Volunteers will be working in areas near their campsites such as the Valley Visitor Center and Happy Isles in the Valley, and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, after it reopens later this year, close to Wawona. Time off to explore the park is also scheduled. All volunteers receive online and on-site training, as well as free park entrance and discounts from the park concessionaire and at Yosemite Conservancy bookstores. To learn more and to volunteer, go to www.yosemiteconservancy.org/volunteer.

Yosemite Conservancy inspires people to support projects and programs that preserve Yosemite National Park and enrich the visitor experience. Thanks to generous donors, the Conservancy has provided $119 million in grants to the park to restore trails and habitat, protect wildlife, provide educational programs, and more. The Conservancy’s guided adventures, volunteer opportunities, wilderness services and bookstores help visitors of all ages to connect with Yosemite. Learn more at yosemiteconservancy.org or call 1-415-434-1782.
