Pagination or Media Count:
On September 18, 1996, President Clinton designated about 1.7 million acres of federal land in southern Utah as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument The monument, which covers an area larger than the State of Delaware, is administered by the Department of the interiors Bureau of Land Management BLM. Within this land area, mineral leases, grazing allotments, and other land use authorizations remain valid despite the areas designation as a national monument. To respond to interest in the extent to which these authorized uses exist, we obtained information on the number of mineral leases, grazing permits, and other use authorizations for BLM managed land within the monument.
