Preserve Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument!
The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument's vast and austere landscape in Southern Utah embraces a spectacular array of scientific and historic resources. Donald Trump’s administration, along with Utah’s delegation, is currently engaging in efforts to substantially reduce the monument. This effort is an archaic and illogical assault on one of the crown jewels of America’s National Monuments and an economic threat to the gateway communities of the Grand Staircase-Escalante.
Please sign our petition today to help protect one of America’s last great wilderness areas!
Since the designation of the monument in 1996, the area’s economy has outpaced the rest of the state and many local citizens have made significant investments in the surrounding communities that are directly connected to the Monument designation, yet politicians in the state of Utah have perpetuated false information to the federal government regarding the sentiments of their constituents. Overwhelmingly, the citizens of Utah support leaving these monuments intact, with their current boundaries.
The Trump administration has cut funding for the Bureau of Land Management and given orders to prioritize extractive industry partnerships over tourism, scientific research and recreation in the new budget.
Please sign today to let this administration know that Americans favor protecting wild, unique and historic landscapes over expansion of energy extraction and pollution of our environment.
We, the people implore our elected officials to cease all efforts to diminish the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument below the current boundaries.
