"Biden Expected To Designate Grand Canyon Monument"

"President Joe Biden is expected to designate a new national monument protecting lands outside the Grand Canyon National Park during his trip to Arizona next week, according to three people who work for conservation groups familiar with the plans.

Those people were granted anonymity to speak about the White House’s plans before a formal announcement.

No details were immediately available about the site’s footprint or whether it would include the full amount of acres sought by Native American tribes."
