NatureBridge partners with the National Park Service to inspire personal connections to the natural world through environmental education in Yosemite National Park. For almost four decades, our residential education programs have provided students from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds with the opportunity to actively experience nature's classroom, often for the first time.

By tapping into sense of wonder through adventure and exploration of this World Heritage Site, we:

  • build scientific understanding and effective connections
  • forge cooperation, problem-solving, and leadership skills, and
  • teach the skills needed for informed decision-making, active citizenship, and stewardship.

The wild places of Yosemite National Park stimulate young minds in ways that the built environment cannot. With today's youth increasingly disconnected from nature, the Yosemite Institute provides experiences and skills that strengthen student's physical, social, and mental health.
