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.

Our all-inclusive voluntours give you the opportunity to go behind the scenes with park staff to help preserve Sequoia’s fragile ecosystems. You will meet quality people, who like you, are eager to leave their personal legacies in this world-renowned natural treasures. Led by Nature Corps staff, these professionally guided voluntours help the National Park Service achieve critical conservation projects that are too large to complete without volunteer support.

Approximately half of the voluntour is devoted to preserving these national treasures, while the rest of the expedition is set aside for enjoying the park. Our experienced naturalists will lead you on a variety of recreational activities including photography/nature walks, fishing, strolling on moonlight walks though the Giant Forest, exploring the caverns in Crystal Cave, visiting picturesque meadows or picnicking alongside a stunning glacial lake in the High Sierra. After a full day of exploring the great outdoors, you will enjoy cooking demonstrations and wine pairings as you prepare to satisfy your appetite on the savory aromas and hearty dishes prepared by our talented chefs. These exciting voluntours can be part of a rewarding experience that will provide family and friends with a lifetime of cherished memories.

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!

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.

Schedule

Day 3


This morning we will ascend Little Baldy. It is a comfortable 1.3 mile trek to the summit of an enormous granite dome that provides a sweeping 360 degree views of the Sierra Nevada. From there we will continue north to Grant Grove to view a number of mature sequoias, including the 27-story General Grant Tree. This giant holds triple honors as the world’s second-largest living tree, a memorial to US soldiers killed in war and the nation’s official Christmas tree since 1926. The nearby Fallen Monarch, a massive, fire-hollowed trunk you can walk through, has been a cabin, hotel, saloon and stables. 

As the day warms, we’ll head to picturesque Hume Lake to enjoy a refreshing swim and picnic by the lake. The lake provides opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing or just relaxing on the beach at Sandy Cove. By late afternoon, we’ll return to our basecamp, to enjoy a celebratory banquet as part of our Farewell Ceremony.
