About the proposed National Monument

The boundary of the proposed monument is, in accordance with the Antiquities Act, confined to the smallest area compatible with proper care and management of objects to be protected. In all, the proposal encompasses close to 600,000 acres of land in four units. The lands are a diverse mix of Chihuahuan desert grasslands, sky island peaks, seasonal streams, rare native cacti, dramatic canyons, and historical remains.
