Merced, CA — Thanks to the generosity of the Toyota Motor Corporation the Yosemite Fund accepted a check today totaling more than $600,000 along with five Prius vehicles at a U.C.-Merced ceremony.
The gifts will be used to support a number of environmental education programs at Yosemite and U.C. Merced.
The park will use Toyota´s contribution to support the Yosemite Leadership Program which is a partnership between Yosemite, U.C. Merced and the California State Parks. This internship program provides students with work experience in a park, wilderness education, a living stipend and the opportunity for possible future employment with the Park.
