The Trump administration has undertaken a review to adjust or reduce the size of national monuments designated in the last few decades.

According to a memo obtained by The Wall Street Journal, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has recommended changes to 7 monuments, including Utah’s Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, as well as Oregon’s Cascade-Siskiyou.
