There are many ways to get involved. The Ansel Adams Gallery is a Yosemite National Park Partner, and helps support the not-for-profit entities that are dedicated to protecting the resources of Yosemite or educating the public about the Park and environmental conservation. Volunteering and fundraising to help the Yosemite specifically are best handled through the Park Partners. Please visit our new site www.yosemiteconservancy.org
Another way to help the National Parks in general is to lobby your United States Congressperson or Senator to increase the NPS operating budget. The most common complaint within any organization is that we don’t have enough money to do all the things we need to do, should do, or want to. The National Park Service is no exception, and has suffered from budget cuts and expanded but underfunded responsibilities. The National Park system was created to protect our American heritage for future generations and provide for today’s generations enjoyment. Congress should provide adequate funding to enable the NPS to achieve its goals.
