Yosemite Recycling & Protection

Yosemite Protection & Conservation

Anyone who has visited Yosemite National Park knows the importance of protecting it for future generations. Beginning in the mid-1800s, the park was formally recognized as a place special enough to require protection. Not only is Yosemite a national park, it's also a World Heritage Site because of its outstanding universal value.

Delaware North encourages and promotes conservation efforts in Yosemite through its GreenPath program. Delaware North sponsors a wide array of initiatives to protect and preserve this beautiful place.

There are also many ways that guests can participate in the effort to protect Yosemite. With 4 million visitors to Yosemite each year, recycling and water conservation are absolute necessities. Visitors are strongly encouraged to participate in our recycling program to protect the park for generations to come.
