Wilderness Stewardship Plan Scoping
Yosemite National Park began a public scoping process for an updated Wilderness Stewardship Plan. The current Wilderness Management Plan was adopted in 1989. The new plan will provide additional policy direction and address contemporary management challenges. Yosemite National Park has over 700,000 acres of designated wilderness, which is maintained for its unique character and enjoyment of future generations.
Public meetings will be held on December 8 2015 and January 20, 2016. Webinars are scheduled for December 16, 2015 and January 5 and 12, 2016. These meetings and webinars are designed to inform the public about the purpose and need for the plan and to provide opportunities for the public to ask questions and give feedback on the scope and direction of the plan. Comments can be submitted online, at public meetings, or via mail to Superintendent, Yosemite National Park, Attn: Wilderness Stewardship Plan, P.O. Box 577, Yosemite, CA 95389. Written comments will also be accepted during public scoping meetings.
The public scoping period will remain open through January 29, 2016. More information can be found at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/yosewild.
