Pursuant to Sec. 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (Pub. 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 Sec. 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The National Park Service (NPS) published the final rule governing viewing of the Inaugural Parade by the Presidential Inaugural Committee in the Federal Register on November 17, 2008. That document inadvertently left out text that was intended to be retained from the previous regulation. That document also retained a paragraph that should have been removed. This document makes correcting amendments restoring the missing text to the appropriate paragraph, and removing the unnecessary paragraph.
