Rep. Earl Blumenauer to President Obama: Protect the Owyhee Canyonlands Now

On August 18, Rep. Earl Blumenauer sent a letter to President Obama expressing his support for a national monument to protect the Owyhee Canyonlands.

For years, a growing coalition has urged our leaders in Congress to take action to permanently protect Oregon's Owyhee. Meanwhile, threats like oil and gas drilling and mining are clawing at the edges of the Owyhee. This area should finally get the protection it so clearly deserves. Take a moment to thank Rep. Blumenauer for his amazing leadership and commitment to protecting the Owyhee!
