Monuments Under Attack
President Trump signed an Executive Order on April 26, 2016 ordering a review of National Monuments designated by the Antiquities Act after 1996 that are over 100,000 acres. This included Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument as well as 26 additional monuments.
We joined our voices together in strong opposition and millions of comments were submitted in support of these monumental lands.
Secretary Zinke's recommendations for CSNM were released in a leaked memo. We now await further action by the Trump administration. There are many things you can do to keep involved in the conversation.
