Bureau of Land Management to take comments on Grand Staircase-Escalante plans

The Bureau of Land Management will take public comments on a draft Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah.

The agency is seeking input on recreational target shooting closures and areas of environmental concern.

Former President Donald Trump reduced the size of the monument during his administration, but President Joe Biden restored it after taking office.

The BLM will take comments through Nov. 9.
