A few days back I shared a video that explained exactly what was meant when discussing “public lands.” In the wake of that post, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced that he would recommend to President Trump that the Bears Ears National Monument be reduced in size. This is seen as a bit of a blow to conservation efforts in Utah, and potentially elsewhere, as a number of other national monuments are also under review. This video reminds us that we need to speak out for our public lands and let our thoughts be known on this subject. We have until July 10 to express our opinions, which can be done at UnitedForPublicLands.com.
