We Asked Your Child’s Favorite Dinosaur Expert Why Grand Staircase Is Worth Defending

When paleontologist Scott Sampson enters Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, he is time-travelling back to the Age of Dinosaurs. He shares with readers what could be lost if courts allow President Trump’s gutting of the monument to stand.
