Last Chance For Public Comment on Review of National Monuments

Last Chance For Public Comment on Review of National Monuments”

Monday marks the deadline to weigh in on the federal government's review of the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.

Comments about the monuments have mainly been positive, the National Resources Council of ME said, and some Mainers who previously opposed the monument now support it.

After President Donald Trump ordered a review of national monuments this past April, Courthouse News embarked on an in-depth series of features investigating how communities across the country are reacting to the news that their protected oceans, forests and deserts may be targeted for closure or reduction.

"The Antiquities Act is really responsible for creating some of our best known national parks whether it's the Statue of Liberty or the Grand Canyon". "So any effort to undermine this act or question the sites that it has honored and protected is really an insult to our national heritage".

The order demands that the Department of the Interior review monuments created by the Antiquities Act-by both Democratic and Republican presidents-since 1996. The move eventually could open up surrounding lands to oil and gas exploration. "In particular, we hope that the administration will abandon Secretary Zinke's recommendation to revoke portions of the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, which provides protection to sites and artifacts that are sacred to the five tribal nations that requested monument status for that area".

Close to 1.5 million people nationally already have made their voices heard.
