Final Environmental Impact Statement; Environmental Education 
Center, Yosemite National Park, Mariposa County, CA; Notice of Approval 
of Record of Decision

SUMMARY: Pursuant to Sec.  102(2)(C) of the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (Pub. L. 91-190, as amended) and the regulations 
promulgated by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR 1505.2), 
the Department of the Interior, National Park Service (NPS) has 
prepared and approved a Record of Decision for the Final Environmental 
Impact Statement for development of a new environmental education 
center in Yosemite National Park. The requisite no-action ``wait 
period'' was initiated February 26, 2010, with the Environmental 
Protection Agency's Federal Register notification of the filing of the 
Final EIS.
    Decision: As soon as practical the NPS will begin to implement 
development of a new environmental education center at Henness Ridge, 
to be operated jointly by NPS and Yosemite Institute. The new center 
replaces the current facility at Crane Flat--it will be on federal 
property and owned by the NPS. As part of the project a water system 
will be developed by the NPS at nearby Chinquapin. This alternative was 
identified and analyzed as the agency-preferred Alternative 3 in the 
Final EIS (and includes no substantive changes from the course of 
action described in the Draft EIS). The full ranges of foreseeable 
environmental consequences were assessed, and appropriate mitigation 
measures are included in the approved plan. Both a No Action 
alternative and an additional ``action'' alternative were also 
identified and analyzed. During an extended scoping period, strong 
community support was expressed for concepts that were developed as the 
agency-preferred alternative presented in the Draft EIS. This base of 
support was reaffirmed during public review of the Draft EIS. As 
documented in the Draft and Final EIS, the selected alternative was 
deemed to be the ``environmentally preferred'' course of action.
