Four national monuments in Arizona, covering almost 2 million acres, will be reviewed under the executive order issued Wednesday by President Donald Trump.
All four were created by President Bill Clinton in 2000 and 2001. Most are overseen by the Bureau of Land Management, except for Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, where the National Park Service works with the BLM.
A fifth monument created by Clinton, the Agua Fria National Monument north of Phoenix, is too small to fall under the Trump order. It covers just over 71,000 acres.
In total, Wednesday’s executive order calls into question two dozen national monuments proclaimed by the last three presidents to set aside millions of acres from development.
