LAS VEGAS SUN- The Gold Butte and Basin and Range national monuments hold tens of thousands of years of culture that must be preserved. The review of their national monument status by the Trump administration is an attempt to erase history in favor of development. This is not to say that we should not try to develop, but rather that we need to consider the historical significance of the areas which we are trying to develop.
The clock is ticking — we must let elected officials know how much we care about these monuments. We need to speak up and let people like Sen. Dean Heller know how that we want our national monuments protected. Please stand up for our lands!
