The Merced River Plan (MRP) Recreation Workshop scheduled for March 25, 2011, has been postponed due to significant winter storm activity. A new date for the workshop has not yet been set.
A strong winter storm system on March 20 dropped more than 3.5 feet of snow throughout the park in areas including Yosemite Valley, Wawona, and Crane Flat. The storm caused all roads leading into Yosemite National Park to be temporarily closed due to snow, ice, mudslides, fallen trees and downed power lines. The park is working to clear roads and restore power to affected areas.
Additional information will be sent out when a new date for the Recreation Workshop is determined.
