Summary Guide for Merced River Draft Plan
A Summary Guide [5.6 MB PDF] along with an alternatives matrix [69 kb PDF] serves as a condensed digest of the Merced Wild and Scenic River Draft Comprehensive Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement. This 20-page guide describes the plan's framework and gives insight into important considerations for managing a Wild and Scenic River within a national park. The guide is intended to direct reviewers to key areas of the document with information most likely to be of interest and to additional resources to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the plan and its environmental consequences. Download a copy of the Summary Guide or request a copy, which comes with a CD of the full draft plan.
