Tell President Obama: Protect Greater Canyonlands
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.
President Obama has the power to
protect Greater Canyonlands with the stroke of a pen — if we can
convince him to do so. But so far, the Obama administration has
continued to defend President Bush’s plans that leave this area open to
rampant off-road vehicle abuse, proposed uranium and tar sand mining,
and oil and gas development.
Please, take a moment to ask President Obama to show leadership and to protect Greater Canyonlands.

Please Protect Greater Canyonlands
Dear [Decision Maker],
I'm writing to ask you to do everything in your power to protect 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. Please leave a legacy that will be appreciated for generations to come by proclaiming Greater Canyonlands a national monument.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
