The Department of the Interior (Department) selected Alternative D (Modification of Land, Structures, or Other Improvements by the Federal Government Prior to Conveyance or Retention of the Center), the preferred alternative, as described in the final EIS for the disposition of the Center issued in December 2009. Under Alternative D, the Federal Government will manage and bear the cost of modification for all or part of the land, structures, or other improvements prior to conveyance or retention of the Center. Following completion of the modifications, the Federal Government will dispose of the Center property through a transfer to a university or nonfederal government entity without conditions, or a transfer to a university or nonfederal government entity with conditions, or will retain the property. The Department also selected the open space/park land use scenario that will convert the Center property to open space and natural areas where the focus will be on restoration and use of the natural environment. This will be accomplished by removing some or all buildings, structures, and roadways. Nonnative plant species will be identified and removed. Native vegetation will be planted and the site naturalized to recreate the historic characteristics of an open oak savanna, prairie-type setting typical to this vicinity. The Department—after consideration of the findings of the EIS, the review of responses received on the request for proposals for future use of the Center property, and the fact that the Center property is located within the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area (MNRRA) boundary— determined that future management authority will be transferred to the NPS.

L. 91–190, as amended), and the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR part 1500–1508), the Department of the Interior, National Park Service, has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) identifying and evaluating three alternatives for redeveloping the Yosemite Institute Environmental Education Campus in Yosemite National Park, California. Yosemite Institute (YI) is a non-profit park partner which has provided environmental education in Yosemite since 1971, and since 1973 has been based at the former Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp at Crane Flat. The Final EIS for the proposed new campus identifies and analyzes two ‘‘action’’ alternatives and a ‘‘no-action’’ alternative. The full spectrums of foreseeable environmental consequences are assessed and suitable mitigation strategies are considered; an ‘‘environmentally preferred’’ course of action is also identified. Concurrently, completion of the EIS process will fulfill public review requirements of § 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Range of Alternatives: Under Alternative 1 (No Action), there would be no change in the environmental education program, location, or conditions at the Crane Flat campus. Necessary maintenance and repairs would continue, but no major improvements, rehabilitation of facilities, or construction of new buildings would occur. There would be no change in the number of overnight accommodations at Crane Flat (76 student bunks and 8 staff beds). The overall number of students in the park E:\FR\FM\26FEN1.SGM 26FEN1

contained in the final EIS.
    The Department of the Interior (Department) selected Alternative D

Government Prior to Conveyance or Retention of the Center), the 
preferred alternative, as described in the final EIS for the

    Under Alternative D, the Federal Government will manage and bear 
the cost of modification for all or part of the land, structures, or

nonfederal government entity without conditions, or a transfer to a 
university or nonfederal government entity with conditions, or will

land use scenario that will convert the Center property to open space 
and natural areas where the focus will be on restoration and use of the 
natural environment. This will be accomplished by removing some or all 
buildings, structures, and roadways. Nonnative plant species will be 
identified and removed. Native vegetation will be planted and the site 
naturalized to recreate the historic characteristics of an open oak 
savanna, prairie-type setting typical to this vicinity.

review of responses received on the request for proposals for future 
use of the Center property, and the fact that the Center property is 
located within the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area
