    For Arizona, the administration was creating the Ironwood Forest National
    Monument. It is near Tucson and west of Saguaro National
    Park-West. It encompasses approximately 134,750 acres of public land
    managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

    In the Four Corners region of southwest Colorado will be the Canyons of
    the Ancients National Monument. It is near the tourist town of
    Durango and near the heavily visited Mesa Verde National Pari. It
    includes some 164,000 acres of public land managed by the Bureau of Land
    Management.

    In south central Oregon will be the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument
    near Medford along the California border. It includes Soda
    Mountain and encompasses about 52,000 acres of public land managed by
    the Bureau of Land Management.

    And in Washington state will be the Hanford Reach National Monument
    in the southeast part of the state along the Columbia River. It
    encompasses about 200,000 acres of public land within the borders of
    the Department of Energy's Hanford Reservation.
