Conservation Nation: Motoring through the Grand Canyon State

CFACT’s @Gabriella Hoffman traverses the Grand Canyon State, exploring Agua Fria national monument, Horseshoe Bend, and of course, the Grand Canyon. Along the way, she talks to various stakeholders giving their take on whether Arizona needs more national monuments, or is the federal government mismanaging what they already have? Find out on the tenth installment of Conservation Nation!

The Left loves to preach an environmental message of doom and gloom – and their solution is always more government control.

You and I know that taxing and regulating something to death doesn’t make it better. As Ronald Reagan famously quipped about the government’s thinking: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

That doesn’t work for the economy, and it doesn’t work for our environment.

That’s why CFACT teamed up with Gabriella Hoffman to sponsor a YouTube series called Conservation Nation. Rather than lecturing you and making you feel guilty about your environmental sins, Conservation Nation showcases real conservation and stewardship work being done by people all over America.

In the most recent installment of this series, Hoffman travels to Arizona, the Grand Canyon State, to visit Agua Fria National Monument, Horseshoe Bend, and of course, the Grand Canyon. While road tripping from place to place, Hoffman speaks with various stakeholders about the controversial issue of national monuments.

While many in government and the media claim we need more and more national monument designations to preserve our lands, those who live in and hunt and use these lands every day say just slapping a national monument designation on something can cause way more problems than it solves.

Check out the new episode, share it with a friend, and let’s vicariously go on a road trip through the Grand Canyon State together!
