OK, so not to buy the land and keep the monument from being shrunk, hopefully the courts will take care of that.  Rather there is a project on Kickstarter to raise money for a Bears Ears Educational Center. Goal is to raise another $100,000 by the end of the year, they already have $230,000 raised towards buying the building and having money for renovations and exhibits.

 

Mods if this needs to be moved elsewhere feel free but thought it would get the most eyes here.

In Fridays San Francisco Chronicle on the opinion page was a great write up by Jonathon B. Jarvis, former NPS director.

 

"Bear Ears a monument to America's best idea".

 

I think if you search the SF Chronicle you can find it.

Very good opinion.

Maybe there is hope through the courts,native people,& lawmakers.

I am not sure if it is more important to donate to this or to the groups that will be funding the inevitable lawsuit to challenge the shrinking of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante.   Supposedly, Trump is coming to UT in December to announce what the damage will be:

Both!

 

I had never noticed before but the last publication from SUWA listed the Legal Director first on the masthead.  There will be a battle but also think it's important to get this funded so that people are aware how to visit without making an impact.
