Come to the San Juans and visit America's latest National Monument! On March 25, President Obama designated existing federal lands in the San Juans as the San Juans National Monument. This preserves forever many undeveloped portions of the islands, as well as historic lighthouses, cultural resources, and fossil areas. The Antiquities Act giving President Obama the authority to designate national monuments was first exercised by President Theodore Roosevelt to create the Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming, and has since been used by 16 Presidents to protect such areas as the Grand Canyon and the Statue of Liberty. The new San Juans National Monument joins American Camp and English Camp National Historic Park.
