President Trump’s orders to repeal Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ear National Monuments and replace them with dramatically smaller monuments has stripped protections for over two million acres of land. Until the courts rule on pending lawsuits against this illegal abuse of presidential authority, SUWA will work to defend all lands within the original monuments from any harm. You can help by joining Monument Watch!
America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act seeks to serve the public interest by permanently protecting more than 9 million acres of wilderness-quality land in Utah. Many of these lands lie adjacent to some of our nation’s most beloved national parks and monuments but enjoy little or no protection. You can help us build support for their protection by asking your members of Congress to cosponsor this visionary legislation.
