Stop the assault on Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

In 2017 President Trump unlawfully slashed Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to half of its original size, exposing wildlife habitat to mining and other harmful development. Now, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is fast-tracking a management plan that prioritizes timber harvest, grazing and mining on the area that was illegally removed from the monument.

If this plan succeeds, Grand Staircase-Escalante and the amazing landscape and wildlife it supports will be lost to development and other uses.

We’re counting on you to demand that the BLM draft a management plan that protects all of the lands within the original Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument boundaries.
