Merced River Plan ~ public meetings
Winter / Spring 2013: Merced River Draft Plan and EIS Workshops
WEBINARS: In order to communicate the essence of the Merced River Draft Plan, Yosemite has presented four webinars each geared to a specific plan topic. These briefings included a 30-minute presentation followed by interactive question-and-answer sessions. Recorded webinars have been uploaded online. Before viewing a webinar, you'll need to download a free JAVA application update made available in early 2013.
Although Merced River Draft Plan public meetings have been completed, it's possible to view the slides presented at each meeting below. Yosemite's staff thanks you for your continued active engagement and input on the plan. The NPS is committed to a collaborative, interdisciplinary planning approach, rooted in public comment.

Starting in 1907, the Yosemite Valley Railroad brought passengers bound for Yosemite Valley up the Merced River canyon to El Portal. From there, they would take stagecoaches to the Valley. Some of the old train cars are now on display in El Portal.
