Yosemite National Park Announces Availability of the Curry Village Rockfall Hazard Zone Structures Environmental Assessment for Public Review
Yosemite National Park announces the release of the Curry Village Rockfall Hazard Zone Structures Environmental Assessment (EA). The EA will be available for public review and comment from August 8, 2011 through September 9, 2011. The EA addresses the future disposition of 72 structures that were previously closed by the Yosemite National Park following rockfall events in 2008. A digital copy of the EA is available on the National Park Service’s Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/CurryRockfall. The public is also invited to discuss the project with park staff on August 31, 2011, at the park’s monthly Open House at the East Valley Auditorium behind the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center from 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Did You Know?
When it opened to the public on May 29, 1926, the Yosemite Museum became the first museum building in the national park system, and its educational objectives served as a model for parks nationwide. It still functions much as it was originally intended, and currently exhibits items which mainly reflect the Native occupation of Yosemite Valley and its surroundings. When in the park, you can visit with one of three cultural demonstrators who primarily staff the Museum.
