Cascade-Siskiyou supporters fear Zinke’s approach

Supporters of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument’s recent expansion fear Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s recommendation to have Congress reduce the size of a new Utah national monument could be applied here.

In a report issued Monday, Zinke said some lands inside the 1.3-million-acre Bears Ears National Monument deserve monument status, but the report also recommends that Congress look at whether some of its lands would be more appropriately designated as national recreation or conservation areas.
