Utah Facing another Massive National Monument!

ARRA Action Alert!

Please Thank your Members of Congress for Opposing the Designation of the Greater Canyonlands as a National Monument

Earlier this week non-motorized recreation groups joined a number of Utah businesses on a letter to President Obama urging him to designate 1.4 million acres of the Greater Canyonlands in Utah as a National Monument. The letter stated, Federal land use plans inappropriately open scenic and undeveloped land to drilling and mining and fail to address exploding off-road vehicle use that is damaging riparian areas, cultural sites, soils and solitude (emphasis added). Of course the letter fails to note that a recent management plan was put in place for the area that is supported by local governments and limits motorized and non-motorized activities to routes that have been subject to environmental analysis and public involvement. Further, the letter from non-motorized organizations cites an economic impact study that shows that outdoor recreation is an overlooked economic giant, generating $646 billion in national sales and services in 2011 and supporting 6.1 million jobs... Again, they are telling only part of the story. The same study shows that approximately $257 billion or nearly 40% of the total $646 billion in economic impact is derived from motorized recreation. And, as you know, motorized recreation is far too often shut out of National Monument areas.
