Yosemite National Park, CA — Yosemite National Park is proposing a project to restore a small number of remote, high-elevation lakes to their native fishless conditions to help restore mountain yellow-legged frog populations.

Officials say the project would also benefit hundreds of other amphibian, reptile, invertebrate, and bird species.

Public scoping for the project will occur from May 17th through June16th.

Scoping is an opportunity early in a planning process for the public to suggest issues to be considered by the National Park Service.

Written scoping comments should be postmarked no later than June 16th. Comments can be submitted during a public Open House to be held in Yosemite Valley in the Visitor Center Auditorium on May 31st from 1pm to 5pm.
