Our 2020 donation is supporting Yosemite Conservancy’s grant for the WildLink Project. This program provides opportunities for teens in Yosemite’s neighboring communities to experience wilderness and see the value of public lands. Despite living nearby, many teens lack access to the park due to barriers related to transportation, income or community perceptions.
WildLink participants connect with the natural world in a variety of ways, such as community-based ambassador projects, family weekends in in the park and Career Connection, a two-week program in Yosemite open to WildLink alumni that serves as an introduction to park-based careers.
With our support, WildLink will help participants develop and share an appreciation for outdoor spaces and become active stewards and champions of the natural world.
