The Lake County Board of Supervisors has voted unanimously to renew their support for the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument, which was created in 2015 by President Barack Obama under the Antiquities Act but is now under review along with 21 others across the country following an executive order by President Donald Trump. In April President Trump ordered monuments of 100,000 acres or more created over the past 21 years to be reviewed. Lake County News reports two-thirds of the 331,000-acre monument is in Lake County, with the rest crossing Mendocino, Colusa, Glenn, Napa, Yolo and Solano. As they did several years ago when the area was being considered for National Monument status, supporters are visiting state, regional, and local leaders to get their support to now maintain that status. This week’s affirmation marks the third time the Lake County Supervisors have said yes.The public comment period on the review of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument ends on July 10.
