Bears Ears & Grand Staircase-Escalante Update

Politics are a slippery slope but it’s important to stand up for what you believe in. Golden State Guiding introduces people to the outdoors in a unique and special way through climbing which in turn creates greater advocacy for the places we love so much. Preservation of our lands for future generations should be our #1 priority. Yesterday president Trump signed two proclamations reducing the size of Bears Ears National Monument by more than 80% and Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument by close to 50%. Removing protections of these lands to sell to private interests will only benefit greedy corporations and destroy these natural places.
