Wild Utah Podcast, Episode 8: A Monumental Plan of Plunder

Oct 3rd, 2019 Written by suwa

SUWA Wildlands Attorney Kya Marienfeld speaks with Dave Pacheco about about the Trump administration’s new master management plans for what remains of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, as well as the nearly one million acres that President Trump excised from the 23 year-old monument. These plans authorize rampant chaining of pinyon and juniper forests and unbridled energy development, and set the stage for a free-for-all of off-road vehicle abuse.

Wild Utah is produced by Jerry Schmidt and is made possible by the contributing members of SUWA. Our theme music, “What’s Worth?” was written and performed in Moab by Haley Noel Austin.
