Yosemite, CA — The park will be holding several workshops and webinars to focus on two complex issues and possible alternatives for the park’s Wilderness Stewardship Plan. Those issues relate to visitor use, capacity and stock use. At the workshops, park officials will share preliminary concepts and want public feedback and suggestions. There will also be discussions surrounding the challenges faced by park managers attempts to provide a balance between public access and protecting Yosemite’s wilderness.
As previously reported, the park began reaching out to the public last year and has already held several workshops and webinars regarding updating the plan. The hope is to solidify management strategies for natural resource management, ecosystem restoration, and trail maintenance.
