National Park Service
Community Services offered
Yosemite was established as a National Park in 1890. Twenty six years later in 1916, the National Park Service agency was created to care for the growing number of National Park units across the country. Today there are over 400 NPS sites in the United States who rely on employees, volunteers and partners to safeguard these special places and share their stories with more than 330 million visitors every year. Taking care of the national parks and helping Americans take care of their communities is a job we love, and we need—and welcome—your help and support. The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.
