Take Action

Urge President Trump to protect Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante

Our national monuments are some of the most iconic landscapes in the country—and yet according to news sources, President Trump told Utah Senator Orrin Hatch that he will be rubber-stamping Interior Secretary Zinke’s recommendations to eliminate protections for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante.

With the land’s distinctive twin buttes, mountaintop meadows, and archeological sites, Bears Ears captures the essence of historic and natural wonders in Utah. Stripping these lands and waters of protections is unthinkable! But according to news reports, President Trump will be making the official announcement in Utah the first week of December. We cannot allow this to happen!

Tell President Trump that you want to protect ALL of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, before it’s too late!

Our national monuments are historical, cultural and natural resource gems that belong to all people living in our great country. We cannot lose these places to this senseless attack! We are working tirelessly with supporters in Congress and across America to make sure this assault does not come to fruition—but we urgently need your help to stop this rollback.

Take action right now to stand up to President Trump so Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante remain protected!

President Trump does not have the legal authority to eliminate these protections—but who knows how far he is willing to go. We must take this fight head on before it’s too late!

LETTER TO BE SENT:

Protect Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante

To President Trump, 


I am extremely disappointed that you intend to strip Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments of protections. Americans spoke out during the national monument review and more than 2.8 million public comments were in support of protecting all 27 national monuments under consideration.

Our public lands help define who we are as a nation by telling the story of our archaeologic history and outdoor heritage. You should listen to millions of Americans who love and use our lands, and look for ways to protect more of our heritage for future generations, not less. Presidents of both parties have used the Antiquities Act to protect some of our greatest landscapes, and this attack on the Antiquities Act should not stand.

I am firmly opposed to any effort to diminish protections for Bears Ears, or any other national monuments under the original review. These unique places benefit all Americans, including future generations. I urge you to support public lands and recommend the boundaries and protections remain as they are today.

Thank you for your consideration.



Sincerely,
