Inscribed in stone:
Water resources, wildlife, tribal communities, forests, habitats, mountains (etc.)
are our national treasures.
The Antiquities Act serves as a shorthand reminder
that natural resources & wonders
must be valued & preserved,
not opened up for, say, radioactive uranium mining & other destructive activities;
“declassified; put under advisement, written off.”
They should be as if inscribed in stone.
Join an effective conservation group that will mobilize its grassroots (deliberately organic wording here) and put pressure on Congress to protect our precious lands.
