SUWA is asking its membership to write many letters to the BLM to close this area.
Here is info from the email.
Below the flanks of the Abajo Mountains on southeastern Utah’s Cedar Mesa lies Arch Canyon, a virtual treasure trove of Native American archaeological sites, most of which have never been surveyed by the BLM. Last December, a broad coalition of conservationists, Navajo Tribal leaders, and local business owners filed a formal Petition to Preserve Arch Canyon’s Natural and Cultural Resources. Three months later, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is taking steps in the opposite direction. Instead of acting on the petition, which is supported by independent scientific research, the agency is preparing an Environmental Assessment in order to issue multi-year permits for destructive off-road vehicle (ORV) events in the canyon.
To send your own personal letter by postal or electronic mail (this type of comment letter is best), write to:
Sandra Meyers, Manager
BLM--Monticello Field Office
435 North Main Street
PO Box 7
Monticello, UT 84535
I included contact information for BLM so our members can write our own letters.
