Habitat Protectors of Yosemite (HaPY)

Volunteers participate in ecological restoration at Yosemite. – NPS

What Can Be Done

Volunteers join Yosemite National Park staff to help preserve and protect Yosemite's habitat by removing non-native plants, ecological restoration, litter pick-up and more. Volunteers of all ages are welcome, and there's no need to sign up in advance.

Just show up at the designated time and place with long pants, closed-toed shoes, water, and sun protection. For groups of 10 or more, or for further information, contact the Yosemite Volunteer office at 209-379-1850 or [email protected]

What the Result Will Be

Volunteer work will result in a reduction of invasive plants (which crowd out native plants), protection of sensitive habitat, and removal of debris that are both unsightly and may harm wildlife.
