Protest Filed Against BLM's Monument Management Plan

August 26, 2019 by Sharee Williamson

The National Trust and our partners took another step to ensure that the cultural resources within Bears Ears National Monument are protected.

On August 26, 2019, we filed a formal protest of the Monument Management Plan released by the Bureau of Land Management earlier this summer. The Plan does not include sufficient protections for cultural resources, and only includes the two small national monument units created by President Trump in 2017.

Further action on this flawed management plan should be put on hold until the courts resolve the legal challenges against the revocation of Bears Ears National Monument.
