Yosemite National Park Announces the availability of the Yosemite Institute Environmental Education Campus Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for Public Review

The Yosemite Institute (YI), a National Park Service (NPS) non-profit park partner, has provided environmental education programs in Yosemite since 1971 at its Crane Flat campus. Most of the campus structures and utilities are over 60 years old, energy inefficient, and difficult to retrofit to achieve modern standards for health, safety, and accessibility. The campus can accommodate only a fraction of the students in the program; the remainder must be based elsewhere in the park, in commercial lodging. To address these issues, YI and the NPS are considering options to provide better facilities by redeveloping the existing campus, or constructing a new campus at Henness Ridge, and restoring Crane Flat to natural conditions.
