Save the Carrizo Plain


The Carrizo Plain National Monument preserves a beautiful natural space for all to enjoy, but it is under attack from those who see it as a source for oil and other resources. The current administration has approved a new oil well and pipeline. The Carrizo Plain is bounded by mountains to the east and west. The left photo in the above graphic shows the industrial area to the east of the monument. We need industry and energy, but we also need places of beauty, quiet, and solitude.
