A plan to save Yosemite by curbing its visitors
Yosemite National Park is one of the most visited national parks and it faces a common dilemma: how much human activity should be allowed?
The Park Service’s plan would restore more than 200 acres of meadows, reorganize transportation and reduce traffic congestion.
