IFTuolumne River Plan Public Information Meetings 

Mammoth Lakes Council Chambers, Suite Z, Minaret Shopping CenterIF

Yosemite National Park has announced the release of the Draft Tuolumne Wild and Scenic River Comprehensive Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (TRP) and invites you to attend one of our interactive public information sessions in Mammoth Lakes on Saturday, February 23rd from 9am-12pm at the Council Chambers, Suite Z. The meeting will consist of an open house, presentation, and opportunity to discuss the Tuolumne River Plan with park staff members and to provide comment on the plan. The public comment period for the TRP is open through Monday, March 18, 2013 and the document can be viewed by visiting the planning website at http://www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/trp.htm

The TRP presents the environmental analysis of four alternatives the National Park Service is considering for the Tuolumne River Wild and Scenic Corridor, including Tuolumne Meadows. The Preferred Alternative seeks to retain a traditional Tuolumne experience while reducing development and making visitor use more sustainable. Specifically, the alternative will allow for the restoration of informal trails, replanting of native vegetation, and the restoration of natural hydrologic conditions; continue to provide visitor access to the Tuolumne River; repair damaged riparian areas near the river and in meadows; maintain the health and integrity of the river system, while still providing access to the river without damaging sensitive areas.

    I picked up a backpacker hitchiking out of indy last summer who told me he worked in yosemite restoring creeks and water drainage doing what beavers would naturally do if beavers still lived in yosemite. he said he builds dams with sticks and mud and clears brush and trees to expand ponds. not sure if he was bs ing me but i found it interesting that they would’nt just reintroduce beavers to yosemite instead of hiring grad students to do the work.

    I need to make things very clear as the 4wd community claimed they had misunderstood what “trail restoration” really meant.

    Restoration means to restore the area to what it was before Man got there. This does not mean to make the trail better and restore it to better use. This means trail “CLOSURES”
    So all you folks that care one way or another need to speak out. Don’t be surprised at a area closing to foot traffic. Some of the illegal trails need to be restored. We need to properly vet the proposals.

    Once again for you thick headed folk. Restoration means “CLOSED”
