Speak Out on BLM Monument Management Plans
Bears Ears and Grand Staircase‐Escalante National Monuments were created to protect the irreplaceable ecological, geological, and paleontological wonders within them.
First, the Trump administration illegally reduced the monuments, and NOW, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has drafted horrific Management Plans that will open areas to extractive activities and drastically change management goals. These proposed plans DO NOT protect the monuments’ exceptional values.
We asked you to speak out against these “sham” plans in April, however, BLM moved forward and has developed Management Plans that prioritize destruction over protection--even after spending tax payer money to identify the best ways to manage cultural, historical, and scientifically significant sites.
