Grand Staircase Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments Planning
Comments Needed

CalUWild’s first project at its founding in 1997 was the Management Plan for the original GSENM (before it was illegally shrunk). With its restoration, the Bureau of Land Management is preparing a new plan, and your input is needed! See our September 2022 Update for details on how you can take part.

The Bears Ears National Monument is also preparing a new management plan, and details will be available here soon.

America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act in Congress

CalUWild’s founding priority was protecting the wild lands of Utah. America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act in Congress would establish optimum protection there. Parts of the original bill have been enacted, and it establishes the standard against which all other bills and proposals must be measured. A detailed factsheet about the bill may be found on the website of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance HERE.

It is important that as many members of both the House and Senate become cosponsors of the bill. Please ask your reps and senators to sign on!

A list of California House and Senate cosponsors may be found HERE. A national listing may be found on SUWA’s website HERE.
