Yosemite National Park Announces Public Meetings Regarding the Tuolumne River Plan
Date: August 5, 2010

Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher announces several public meetings regarding the Comprehensive Management Plan for the Tuolumne Wild and Scenic River (Tuolumne River Plan). The public meetings will take place at Parsons Memorial Lodge in Tuolumne Meadows on August 20, September 10, September 11, September 17, and September 18, 2010. All meetings will occur from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

In 1984, the Tuolumne River became a federally protected Wild and Scenic River. Yosemite National Park is currently drafting a management plan for the 54 miles of the Tuolumne River that flows through the park. The Tuolumne River Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement will be released for public comment in late 2010 or early 2011.

Visitors attending the public meetings will learn what makes the Tuolumne River a Wild and Scenic River and why it stands out from other rivers. Visitors will also learn ways in which to protect and enhance river values for the future. Attendees at the meetings are encouraged to share ideas regarding the planning effort. There are also special activities planned for kids.

The meetings will include a slideshow presentation, followed by a short walk to the Tuolumne River. Attendees are advised to bring water, sunscreen, and sturdy walking shoes. Visitors should allow 30 minutes to walk to Parsons Memorial Lodge from the Tioga Road.
