Bears Ear and Grand Staircase-Escalante Restored!

In proclamations signed Friday, President Biden reestablished the original boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. Elections do matter.

“We are here today…bending the arc of the moral universe toward justice,” Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland said at Friday’s signing ceremony. Secretary Haaland thanked President Biden for his profound action to restore Bears Ears and “permanently protect the homelands of our ancestors,” adding “Bears Ears is a living landscape. When I’ve been there I’ve felt the warmth and joy of ancestors who’ve cared for this special place since time immemorial.”
