Other organizations working to preserve Mineral King's natural and cultural resources:

The Mineral King District Association has been active since the early 1960s, primarily as a homeowner's association dealing with operational and maintenance issues. Its current focus is to enter into a cooperative agreement between the Park Service and cabin families to preserve and maintain this historic community, so that future generations of visitors to the park will still be able to enjoy this unique example of an early California mining community where people are still living much as they did over a century ago.

Located near the based of the Mineral King Road,Three Rivers Historical Society and Museum is an educational and research institution whose primary functions are to collect, preserve, and exhibit materials relating to the region. The Society is dedicated to providing opportunities for the community to understand and experience the past through the presentation of exhibits and displays, lectures, demonstrations, special events and participatory programs.

EarthJustice, a non-profit public interest law organization, has created an unique interactive web experience that highlights Mineral King's natural microenvironments and the role of the organization in helping to protect them in the 1970s.
