The Bureau of Land Management is “chaining” our public lands, including within Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
In my opinion, “chaining” looks straight outta Isengard from Lord of the Rings.
The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) has launched a statewide television and online media campaign in Utah to focus public attention on the Bureau of Land Management’s destructive practice of “chaining” native pinyon and juniper forests to create more forage for cattle on public lands. Now the BLM wants to chain in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Call the BLM at 801-539-4010 or learn more at suwa.org/chaining
