How to get Involved 
The public comment period for the Draft Monument Management Plans and Environmental Impact Statement for the Shash Jáa and Indian Creek Units of the Bears Ears National Monument opened on Friday, August 17, 2018 and concluded on November 15, 2018.

Thank you to everyone who read the draft national monument management plans and environmental impact statement, as well as other supporting documents and information, and took the time to provide meaningful feeback.  Feedback on management options, data gaps, concerns, new data or information which should be considered, or any relevant comments will help the planning team improve the analysis and the management plans.  Thank you also for information regarding the identification, evaluation and management of historic properties at this time, as the BLM will use this information to help address these concerns per our guidance under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and its implementing regulations found at 36 CFR Part 800.

During this planning effort, the BLM and US Forest Service have hosted six public meetings: two in late March as planning was being initiated, a economic strategies workshop meeting in June, and three public meetings in October during the draft review period.  Approximately 6 months of the ongoing planning period have been devoted to public comment.  We appreciate the feedback we have received and the planning team will review and consider all of the substantive comments in preparing the Proposed Monument Management Plans and Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Bears Ears National Monument.
