Obama creates San Juan Islands National Monument: read the proclamation

President Obama today designated a national monument in the San Juan Islands, proclaiming the archipelago “a refuge of scientific and historic treasures and a classroom for generations of Americans.”

As we reported last week, the designation will offer additional protections for some 1,000 acres of undeveloped federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management. It does not move any new lands under federal control. The San Juan Islands was one of five new national monuments designated by Obama today, under the authority of the Antiquities Act of 1906.

Read the entire proclamation:
