“The most contested of these Monuments have always seemed to be Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, both of which – along with nearby Canyon of the Ancients – have fossil fuels beneath them. While those two Monuments have received the majority of headline coverage, California’s Carrizo Plain also sits near oil deposits and some oil companies maintain mineral rights below the protected lands in the Monument, and the Mojave Trails National Monument is under threat from the controversial Cadiz Water Project, which aims to drain an aquifer in the Mojave desert to water urban lawns in Orange County. “

I’ve put CA first, but the full list is below:

Berryessa Snow Mountain
Carrizo Plain
Giant Sequoia (REDWOODS!!!!!)
Mojave Trails
Sand to Snow
San Gabriel Mountains

Grand Canyon-Parashant  (GRAND CAYON!!!)
Ironwood Forest
Sonoran Desert
Vermillion Cliffs

Canyons of the Ancients

Craters of the Moon

Katahadin Woods and Waters

Upper Missouri River Breaks

Basin and Range
Gold Butte

New Mexico
Organ Mountains – Desert Peaks
Rio Grande del Norte

Cascade Siskiyou

Grand Staircase-Escalante

Hanford Reach

In addition to the 22 land-based National Monuments, five marine National Monuments are being “reviewed” in accordance with the “Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy” executive order:

Marianas Trench
Northeast Canyons and Seamounts
Pacific Remote Islands
