Tell Congress to Protect Our Public Lands

Tell Congress to Protect Our Public Lands

Almost 3 million acres in California. That’s what’s at risk with the recently-announced “review” of National Monuments that the federal government is undertaking.

Based on a late April Executive Order by President Trump and the May 5 list released by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, monuments in California that preserve irreplaceable coastal, desert, redwood forest, and grassland plains are all at risk.

Some of these California monuments are more than 16 years old and some are less than a year from their designation. But what they have in common is that they preserve landscapes and habitat that are uniquely Californian.

This so-called review is a threat to the protection of any public land!

You can help – use your voice for parks and tell your Congressional Representative to oppose any efforts to rollback existing protections for parks and National Monuments.

Thank you for taking action and for all you do for California’s state parks!

Sincerely,

California State Parks Foundation
