Comment on the Preservation, or Not, of 27 National Monuments (U.S. DOI)

What do your students think about preserving (or not) the status of 27 National Monuments in the Western United States? Can they develop an informed opinion on the matter? Here is a teaching opportunity in direct democracy (gathering public opinion about important matters) and research (into the history, geography, economics, and civics of the current National Monuments). At the end of their research, if they wish, students can submit their thoughtful comments to the federal government.
