Today President Trump signed an Executive Order to identify National Monuments that can be shrunk or reversed all together. Escalante, pictured here, and Bears Ears, the newly designated monument in Southern Utah, are targets along with 20-something other monuments (there's a complete list on the @latimes) . Senator Hatch of Utah wrote an op-ed in the Washington supporting this move, as does the rest of the Utah delegation. Does this look like the kind of place that should be sold to the highest bidding driller?
Here's a couple of things you can do to oppose this:
1) Call Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinkes office - 202-208-7351. You can also tweet at him at @secretaryzinke.
2) Call Senator Hatch - 202-224-5251
2) Donate to and support groups like @protectwildutah, @npcapics and others
3) Get involved in the next election and help vote the guys out who don't support outdoor recreation.
