Navajo National Monument in northern Arizona. Six national monuments are being recommended for shrinking by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, which directly violates the Antiquities Act according to Navajo attorney general Ethel Branch. We have to stand up and preserve our public lands for future generations, lest they end up exploited like Lake Tahoe and Niagara Falls. America is a beautiful country, let's keep it that way! .

Trying to make sense of the national monument review process is like trying to avoid stepping on a scorpion in the dark.
In other words, our government is making it really hard for the public to see what is going on.
Here’s what we know so far.
In April, President Trump signed an executive order instructing the Department of the Interior (DOI) to review whether 27 national monuments deserved continued protection.
From May to July, the public was allowed to submit comments about this review. All of you spoke up to defend our Mojave monuments! Nearly three million Americans joined you in submitting public comments, 98% of which were in favor of keeping or expanding protections.
August 24th, DOI Secretary Zinke submitted his recommendations to the White House...and refused to release them to the public.
Since then, the public has waited for any information. And our Desert Defenders have continued to raise our voices about why our monuments deserve continued protection!
This Sunday, The Washington Post published a leaked version of Secretary Zinke's report. Although this was supposed to be the DOI’s finalized review, it was titled as a draft and only contained vague recommendations for ten monuments.
It would need further revision by Zinke to become a final report. There was no mention of the other 17 monuments officially under review, including Mojave Trails and Sand to Snow. Nor was there word on Castle Mountains, which Rep. Cook asked Secretary Zinke to cut, although it wasn't part of the original review.
Ultimately, no monument was declared safe. And the report's omission of 17 monuments leaves them open to untold threats down the line, like executive orders or management plan reviews.
What the leaked report does make clear is that the Trump administration is preparing for an unparalleled attack on protected public lands that could result in widespread loss of wildlife habitat and economic harm to local businesses.
This entire process is unprecedented -- and tomorrow, we'll let you know what's next.

On Sunday, a copy of Secretary Zinke's #secret recommendations to the @whitehouse was leaked to the press. It proposed slashing 4 #publiclands national monuments including #BearsEars, #GrandStaircase and #GoldButte on the #ColoradoPlateau. It also recommends opening national monuments to mining, commercial logging, and fossil fuel drilling. These are the things that #AntiquitiesAct monuments prevent, in order to preserve our heritage and culture!

Never before has a presidential administration considered such an outrageous assault on protected public lands. If Trump acts unilaterally on Zinke's recommendations, he'll be using legal authority he does not have, and it will not stand.

An old miners cabin on Pittsburg Lake, couldn't find any information on it other than the placard on it. It is protected by the 1906 Antiquities Act. It would be amazing if someone could fix it up a bit for lodging/shelter. Couldn't think of a better place to stay than an old cabin on the side of a mountain next to an alpine lake!

It's a short 3.3 mile round trip hike but a hefty 1600ft climb to build up a good sweat and wake up those lungs! It was overcast and foggy with a bit of rain but made for excellent pictures and still an awe inspiring view.

The #secretaryoftheinterior has recommended stealing part of our preserved #nationalparks for grazing, mining, fishing & other activities.
This is in direct violation of the 1906 #antiquitiesact introduced by #theidoreroosevelt
Just another criminal act brought to you by our gang of #climatedeniers to benefit their supporters. Meanwhile, more hurricanes heading our way.

#Regram #RG @nrdc_org: For archaeologist Angel Peña and his community, the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument is a local treasure with something for everyone, whether it’s family trips, geological discoveries, or off-roading. As Trump and his administration are planning to weaken, shrink, or eliminate dozens of America’s national monuments like this one, NRDC and Next 100 Coalition have teamed up to make sure this doesn’t happen. TAKE ACTION—link in bio.

What was supposed to be an open and involved discussion, has suddenly gone dark at the review process. @usinterior Secretary Ryan Zinke has allegedly recommended significantly reducing the size of #nationalmonuments to the President. Specifically Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante. Well, they are going to be in for quite a fight, if they do decide to do so. Make your voices heard. 99.2% of the 2.8 million letters written to Secretary Zinke were in support of leaving the monuments as they are. #protectbearsears #standwithbearsears #standwithgrandstaircase #conservation #monumentsforall #legacy #rockart #nature #honortribes #antiquitiesact #thislandisourland #protectwildutah #partneringwithnature #publiclands #optoutside #wilderness

#Zuni Elder Octavius Seotewa interprets #rockart at #NewspaperRock inside #BearsEarsNationalMonument.

Last week, @usinterior Secretary Zinke forwarded his recommendations to the president for his #nationalmonuments review. I'd love to be able to tell you what those recommendations say, but they are being kept secret. Unconfirmed reports say that Secretary Zinke recommended shrinking #BearsEars by 88%! #GrandStaircaseEscalante is also on the chopping block, along with at least two other #monuments.
2.8 million commented on the monuments review, and 99.2% of them urged the @whitehouse to leave our #publiclands national monuments as they are.
The fate of our national monuments is now rests with the president, and should he act unilaterally to shrink our national monuments, we'll see him in court.

More than 2.7 million Americans wrote to the Secretary of Interior to tell him hands off our national monuments.
Zinke is recommending that Trump slash the size of at least three national monuments: Grand Staircase-Escalante, Bears Ears and Cascade-Siskiyou.
The law is clear: only Congress has the authority to change a national monument designation under the Antiquities Act—not the president. If the administration shrinks our monuments, he will hear from us next in court! Click link in bio for more info.

Tomorrow Zinke will announce the results of the massive review that the DOI began under the new administration. As I think about the national monuments that I have spent time in, I am struck by the depth of my experiences there. From climbing and backpacking trips with friends to solo missions full of quiet, I leave humbled and amazed every time. Being involved in public land management is something I feel I can be proud of in a country that has recently left me feeling confused and upset. I hope that tomorrow has a happy ending but regardless, I will continue trying to create a culture of preservation and conservation in any capacity that I can.
