Zinke: Trump will probably cut Bears Ears NMon from 1.35M acres to a little over 180,000
Washington • Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says he believes President Donald Trump will trim Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument as he recommended but it will still be larger than Zion and Bryce national parks combined.
That could mean a dramatic reduction from the current 1.35 million acres to somewhere north of 180,000 acres. Zion covers 147,000 acres and Bryce nearly 36,000 acres. State leaders had asked Trump to cut Bears Ears down to 120,000 acres.
