Yosemite, CA — Yosemite National Park will soon ask for input on its Merced River Plan.
The plan, which is still a work in progress, will guide future decisions about transportation, restoration, camping, parking and other aspects of the park. It helps guide the management of Yosemite within the Merced River corridor.
“This is a critical step in the public planning process and I can’t stress enough how important it is for the public to remain engaged and invested,” says Don Neubacher, Park Superintendent. “We ask that the public continue to inform this process and let us know what they think.”
An update on alternatives and the planning process will be unveiled by the National Park Service in mid-March.

• Wednesday, March 28, 2012, 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Yosemite Valley Auditorium
