Antiquities Act: Executive Over-Reach or Necessary Action?

In this episode of National Park Talk, we discuss the importance and need for the Antiquities Act, an act that has been used by nearly every president since Teddy Roosevelt to preserve and protect some of our most treasure public lands and places.

The Act is under attack from those who believe recent presidents have abused the powers vested in the executive office and are working to undermine or repeal the act.

Unfortunately, the president and even some conservation groups appear  too sensitive to these criticisms and have apparently forfeited many sites which are worthy of protection as national monuments under the national park service to other agencies.

Finally, this episode will speculate on those places President Obama should designate as national park monuments in his remaining time in the oval office.
