Bernhardt announces 3 new National Natural Landmarks

WASHINGTON – Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt this week designated three new sites as national natural landmarks. The sites in West Virginia, Colorado and California bring the number of national natural landmarks in the U.S. to 602, heralding an important milestone for the National Park Service’s National Natural Landmarks Program.

“The Trump Administration has prioritized conservation since day one, and we have made historic progress to improve conservation stewardship nationwide,” said Secretary Bernhardt. “With more than 600 national natural landmarks, we recognize and celebrate the breadth and diversity of America’s natural beauty and our partners for their commitment to conserving America’s natural heritage.”
