Additional New Monuments?

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Thursday, July 23, 2015/Categories: natural history, wildlife conservation, sustainability, environment

President Obama recently announced three new  national monuments . It  was a wise use of his authority under the Antiquities Act of 1906 that has been used by presidents republican and democratic to protect threatened lands and historical places.

The President also met recently with the CEO of  Black Diamond Equipment  at the White House. Peter Metcalf, a Board member of  The Conservation Alliance , met with Mr. Obama to to discuss the importance of outdoor experiences and wildlands protection and the role of protecting national landscapes for all Americans.

Could their meeting indicate additional national monument designationss are coming soon? Let's hope so. Their tie colorations certainly indicated non-partisan approval for such important President actions.
