As you may already know, president trump signed an executive order yesterday calling for a review of national monuments, saying that national monument designations "create barriers to achieving energy independence.. and otherwise curtail economic growth." perhaps what's being ignored here is that the outdoor industry provides the us economy with $887 billion in consumer spending annually and also provides 7.6 million americans with jobs. this poses a very real threat to lands that have been preserved for future generations as well as posing a threat to the livelihood of many. if you'd like to help to defend america's public lands, voice your concerns to secretary zinke at 202.208.6416.
