In April, President Donald Trump requested that all presidential national monument designations or expansions since 1996 be reviewed. In particular, Trump requested review of designations of areas over 100,000 acres and/or those that were “made without adequate public outreach and coordination” to determine if revisions were necessary.
Trump is considering the need to reduce the size of, or altogether eliminate, some of these monuments.
The Patagonia ad encourages people to oppose changes to national monuments because “this [land] belongs to all the people in America—it’s our heritage.”
