Interior Secretary and former Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke has recommended the creation of three new national monuments to the Trump Administration, including one in Montana. Published reports indicate during a press call Tuesday Zinke released his final report, outlining recommendations he made to President Donald Trump following an executive order to review the National Monuments and the Antiquities Act.

The new monument recommendations include the Badger II Medicine area of the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana; Camp Nelson, a Civil War-era Union Camp in Bluegrass Country in Kentucky; and the home of civil rights activist Medger Evars in Mississippi. On Monday, Trump announced his intention to shrink two Utah monuments contained in the report: The Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bear Ears. It recommended modifying Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument in Oregon, including modifying the boundary, and the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada.
