Yosemite National Park announces a public meeting for the Tenaya Lake Plan. The meeting will take place on July 10, 2010 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Yosemite Valley Auditorium behind the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center. Park staff will discuss the Tenaya Lake Plan including alternative actions, proposed resource restoration and protected sites, and proposed visitor facility changes. 

The public meeting is an opportunity for the public to learn more about the Tenaya Lake Plan. It is also used as an opportunity for the park to hear concerns and comments regarding the planning effort and alternative actions of the plan. 

Visitors wishing to learn more about the Tenaya Lake Plan can also attend two upcoming site visits at Tenaya Lake. Visitors should plan to meet at the main beach at the end of the parking area at Tenaya Lake in Tuolumne Meadows. Participants should bring water, snacks, and comfortable shoes to walk in. Site visits are planned on:

  • Wednesday, August 11 at 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, August 28 at 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Tenaya Lake Plan will be released for public review in late summer of 2010.



Did You Know?

Yosemite Museum

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.
