NPCA - You're Invited

Dear Friend of the National Parks,


For more than a decade Yosemite National Park has been working on the Merced River plan, which forms the foundation for the protection of most of Yosemite Valley’s unique and precious resources while ensuring that visitors have a great experience. The final plan will guide decisions that attempt to balance these needs for years to come.

This spring planners are holding interactive public workshops and webinars to prepare the public to provide input on the recently released final draft. Find more information about the Merced River Plan here, and check out the meeting and webinar details below. We hope you can join us at one or more of these important meetings.
