Norton May Visit Yosemite
Interior Secretary Gale Norton may make her first official visit to Yosemite. The visit would come as a controversial $100 million building project has pitted some environmentalists against park officials.
Earth Day activities at the park will take place on the mall in front of the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center. Planned activities include demonstrations of wildlife management techniques by the Yosemite Wildlife Management staff and exhibits by the Discovery Vans (mobile Sierra Nevada learning centers), highlighting sustainable practices by the National Park Service and their park partners.
