Interior secretary, governor to visit Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown will both visit the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument this weekend, spurred by Zinke’s review to determine whether January’s expansion of the monument was appropriate under the federal Antiquities Act.

The Interior Department announced Friday morning that Zinke will visit Saturday but gave no other details of his trip to view the 113,013-acre monument, which is primarily in southeastern Jackson County but now stretches west into Klamath County and south into California after President Barack Obama’s expansion just before leaving office in January.
