Tell President Obama: Protect Greater Canyonlands

Greater Canyonlands Meme

The Greater Canyonlands area — encompassing 1.4 million acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land surrounding Canyonlands National Park — is a landscape of sweeping plateaus, stunning geologic formations, 10,000 year old archeological sites, and unmatched natural beauty.

But it is under increasing pressure from oil and gas development, potash and uranium mining, off-road vehicle abuse, and even proposed tar sands mining.

Using the Antiquities Act, President Obama has the power to protect Greater Canyonlands with the stroke of a pen — but only if we can convince him to do so.

Please, take a moment to ask President Obama to show leadership and to protect Greater Canyonlands.

Please Protect Greater Canyonlands

Dear [Decision Maker],

In your 2014 State of the Union Address, you said that you would use your "authority to protect more of our pristine federal lands for future generations."

There are few federal lands more worthy of such protection than the Greater Canyonlands region -- the 1.4 million acres of magnificent BLM land surrounding one of the crown jewels of our National Park System, Canyonlands National Park in southern Utah. I'm writing to ask you to leave a legacy that will be appreciated for generations to come by proclaiming Greater Canyonlands a national monument.

President Obama, Greater Canyonlands is an icon of our western heritage. It deserves protection for all time as a national monument. Please take action to protect this national treasure.
