Too busy to pack your gear? No worries. You’ll have the option to have everything ready when you arrive.
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.
This is like no other experience. You will come for a volunteer weekend, but leave the legacy of a lifetime.
Yosemite 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 excursion begins in the heart of Yosemite Valley. After settling in, we will enjoy a festive dinner and meet with park staff for an overview of our upcoming adventure. Afterward, we will hike to Mirror Lake Meadow to get an incredible view of Half Dome, one of the most dramatic displays of granite formation in the Sierra Nevada. After our hike, we’ll gather around the evening campfire to savor one of our chef’s delectable desserts.
