Our View: Monument review a moving target – Opinion

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s recommendation to scale back Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument may pose less of a threat to Southern Oregon’s Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument than supporters fear.

For one thing, Bears Ears is far larger — 1.35 million acres compared with a little over 100,000 in the Cascade-Siskiyou. Carving out some portion of the larger monument for lesser protections would be much easier to do, and could probably be accomplished with less effect on the monument as a whole.
