Bears Ears is one of 27 national monuments under review by the Trump administration. Recent reports indicate that Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has recommended a drastic reduction in its size.
Aspen native Joe Carlson is producing a documentary film called “First Stories: Bears Ears” about the national monument and the American relationship with wild lands. He spoke with environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy about his work.
