Yosemite Valley, CA– Yosemite National Park is currently working on developing alternatives for the Comprehensive Management Plan for the Merced Wild and Scenic River.
This plan will provide the framework for management decisions regarding the Merced River and the Merced River Corridor in Yosemite. The park contains 81 miles of the Merced River, which was designated a Wild and Scenic River in 1987.
Park officials are encouraging the public to participate in the planning effort.
This Fall, five workshops concerning various aspects of the plan will provide an opportunity for people to give suggestions to the park regarding options and topics that should be included in the alternatives. Suggestions will be used to help shape the alternatives that will presented in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Merced River Plan.
The Fall Workshops begin October 27th and run until November 9th.
