- Ruth. H

All-Inclusive

Too busy to pack your gear? No worries. You’ll have the option to have everything ready when you arrive.

​Rejuvenating

It’s more than volunteering, it’s a vacation too! Culinary treats, wine pairing, photography, nature walks, all to help you savor the Yosemite experience.

Rewarding

This is like no other experience. You will come for a volunteer weekend, but leave the legacy of a lifetime.

It’s an experience that will leave you with a lifetime of memories and personal rewards .

What makes Nature Corps so Different?

Taking a Sequoia volunteer vacation is truly one of the most memorable experiences you can have. While a majority of organizations focus solely on volunteering, our award-winning program places equal emphasis on the vacationing aspect of your volunteer vacation. Our greatest desire is to provide you with a well-rounded and fulfilling experience as you leave your personal legacy in this spectacular natural wonder.

For over 30 years, Nature Corps has designed volunteer vacations with you in mind. We make all the arrangements so that you don’t have to. Our goal is to provide you with a “glamping” volunteer vacation that will leave you with new friends and a lifetime of cherished memories of this multi-faceted Sequoia vacation.

Why Sequoia needs you.

Sequoia faces a multi-million dollar backlog of important conservation projects. To address this critical issue, the National Park Service turns to agencies such as Nature Corps to recruit and organize volunteer groups to tackle the most urgent projects. Your participation will help the National Park Service achieve critical conservation projects that are too large to complete without volunteer support.

Currently, Nature Corps has teamed up with the Park Service to rehabilitate Sequoia’s beautiful sequoia groves. Giant Sequoias have a root ball that extends over two acres, yet its roots are only 3-4 feet below the surface. Because of the impact resulting from the foot traffic of over one million visitors per year, it is critical that these ancient trees and their surrounding habitat are protected. Through our Sequoia voluntours, you will have a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes and work alongside park biologists to preserve these world-renown ecosystems. Your involvement is vital to the protection of the region’s wildlife and to the preservation of this iconic national park. Join us today!

What is included in the voluntour

Program contributions include park entrance fees, camping fees, all meals, the chefs, cooking demonstrations and wine pairings, guides, photography nature walk, and Nature Corps t-shirt and water bottle.

Your contributions are tax-deductible and the proceeds from your vacation support our veterans and low-income student volunteers.

Schedule

Day 4

This morning we will ascend Little Baldy. It is an easy trek to the summit of an enormous granite dome that provides sweeping 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains. From there we will continue north to Redwood Canyon, where one of the park's largest sequoia groves is secluded in this remote canyon. As lunch approaches we head to picturesque Hume Lake where we will enjoy a picnic by the lake. The lake provides opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing or relaxing with a good book on the beach at Sandy Cove. The rest of the afternoon you are free to visit park museums, shop or head back to camp for a nice afternoon nap. That evening we'll enjoy a celebratory banquet as part of our Farewell Ceremony.
