First Alternatives Webinar Scheduled

We are tailoring this special web-based workshops to allow online participants to explore and discuss the management considerations identified in the workbook.

Sneak Peak at El Portal Workshop Agenda
Still on the fence about whether or not to join us at one of the workshops? Check out the agenda for the El Portal workshop (October 27, 5-8 pm) and the companion workbook to see some of the topics that we will be discussing.
In addition to the 33 management considerations identified in the workbook, we will be sharing some conceptual drawings and studies of ways we might reuse or redesign some key areas such as the Camp 6/Day-use Parking intersection, Yosemite Lodge, Wawona store parking area, and El Portal. Due to their draft state these drawings are currently only available at the workshops, we will post them to the web once they are further refined.
