Yosemite National Park released the Restoration of the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Mariposa Grove DEIS) for public review and comment last month. The public comment period for the Mariposa Grove DEIS is open now through Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
A webinar and several public meetings have been scheduled to discuss the plan. The webinar will provide a brief overview of select key topics, followed by an interactive question and answer session. The public meetings are an opportunity for the public to learn more information about each plan, interact with park staff, and provide feedback. The meetings will consist of a short presentation about the plan, a question and answer session with park managers and planners, and an open house with background materials about the plan.
