Tuolumne Wild and Scenic River Final Comprehensive Management Plan and EIS
Document Type
FIN - Final Document
Document Description
FYI Congress designated the Tuolumne River as Wild and Scenic in 1984, requiring the National Park Service (NPS) to develop a comprehensive management plan under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. The NPS completed an Environmental Impact Statement in February 2014, and will implement Alternative 4 as the Selected Action. Tuolumne Meadows will retain its overall rustic character with limited facilities and services, allowing for low-impact recreational activities. The visitor experience will be enhanced by rehabilitating the campground, improving traffic circulation and access to recreational opportunities, removing unsightly roadside parking, and improving the health and appearance of subalpine meadows. The plan will protect and enhance river values, establish a user capacity management program, and determine land use and associated developments.
