MRP Gears Up for Alternative Development

February 2, 2011

This summer we will ask you to help us brainstorm different ideas about how to protect the Merced Wild and Scenic River. To prepare for this collaboration we have begun posting information to our website. This collaboration will lead to the development of alternatives for the Merced River Plan.
