The purpose of this project is to develop a comprehensive plan for phased, long-term rehabilitation of The Ahwahnee - a National Historic Landmark - and associated guest cottages, employee dormitory, and landscaped grounds.
Repair and rehabilitation of the ski lodge are necessary to protect its historic integrity, assure visitor safety, and maintain ski-area visitor services while preserving the natural and cultural resources.
This plan will outline a comprehensive approach to interpreting park natural and cultural resources. The final product of this effort will guide interpretation and education in Yosemite for the next 5 -10 years.

General Management Plan
This plan defines the direction for resource preservation and visitor use in Yosemite National Park. It provides a foundation for decision-making and sets long-term goals for the park. It was developed with broad public involvement.
The purpose of the Scenic Vista Management Plan is to provide a systematic program for documenting, protecting, and reestablishing Yosemite's important viewpoints and vistas, consistent with the natural processes and human influences that created them.
Problems associated with visitor use, visitor safety, and resource impacts have been occurring for decades. Thanks to a grant from The Yosemite Fund, a comprehensive analysis of, and solution to these issues is underway.
NatureBridge, a NPS non-profit park partner, has provided environmental education programs in Yosemite National Park since 1971. Most of the campus structures and utilities are more than 60 years old and difficult to retrofit to modern standards. The NPS and NatureBridge developed a plan to address these issues.
