In late spring 2011, the National Park Service will release for public review the Tuolumne Wild and Scenic River Comprehensive Management Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Tuolumne River Plan/DEIS). Members of the public will be invited to review and comment on the draft plan, as well as attend one of several public meetings throughout the summer (to be announced in a future update).

To minimize the need for printing, members of the public are encouraged to review the Tuolumne River Plan/DEIS via the NPS Planning Environment Public Comment (PEPC) website (http://parkplanning.nps.gov/yose_trp). In addition, the draft plan will be available for you to review and comment in the following formats:

1. CD-ROM version (upon request)
2. Hard copy version (printed in very limited supply)

Printed copies of the Tuolumne River Plan/DEIS will also be made available to local libraries throughout the region.


To request a CD or printed version, PLEASE PRINT your name and address and send by April 22 via one of the following:
1. By fax to (209) 379-1265
2. By email to yose_planning@nps.gov
3. By phone to (209) 379-1110
4. By mail to
Yosemite National Park, Superintendent
Attn: Tuolumne River Plan/DEIS REQUEST
P.O. Box 577
Yosemite, CA 95389


In 1984, the Tuolumne was added by Congress to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. As mandated by law, a comprehensive river management plan is required to direct how the managing agency will protect and enhance the river's free-flowing condition, its water quality, as well as its outstandingly remarkable values. When completed, the Tuolumne River Plan will guide the future management of the 54 miles of the Tuolumne Wild and Scenic River that flow through Yosemite National Park. The plan and draft EIS will contain all elements required by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act; document the condition of river values; propose programs for restoration, monitoring, and user capacity; and analyze a range of site-specific management alternatives in the river corridor.

Stay informed of the Tuolumne River Plan/DEIS release and future activities by visiting the Tuolumne River Plan web page at http://www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/trp.htm
