Citing damage to saguaros, conservation NGOs protest USBLM decision to allow continued recreational shooting in Sonoran Desert NMon
PHOENIX - Six conservation groups have filed a formal protest against a proposed management plan for the Sonoran Desert National Monument southwest of Phoenix.
The groups say the plan does too little to protect the monument's cultural and natural resources, including archaeological sites and the saguaro cactus, from unrestrained recreational shooting. Sandy Bahr, director of the Grand Canyon chapter of the Sierra Club, explains.
