Protect Utah’s monuments for #NationalPublicLandsDay

With so many other big issues in the limelight, let’s not forget about National Monuments. Secretary Zinke’s report on his monuments review threatens to dramatically reduce Grand Staircase Escalante and Bears Ears along with four other monuments, ignoring the wishes of a majority of Utahns, 99.2% of public comments on the review and a wide range of Americans who support our monuments from across the country, including faith leaders, veterans, archaeologists, historians, tribes, business owners, tourists, hunters and outdoor recreationalists from both sides of the aisle.

Action Utah member Kate Ferguson made her voice heard by publishing this terrific letter to the editor in the Salt Lake Tribune. You can speak up about public lands too. National Public Lands Day is Sunday, September 24th. Here are 3 things you can do today, Sunday and any day to keep protection of national monuments in the spotlight.
