President Barack Obama is designating five new national monuments, including San Juan Island, using executive authority to protect historic or ecologically significant sites. The San Juan Islands includes roughly 1,000 acres of public land already managed by the BLM. Supporters say the designation will protect important cultural and historical areas and safeguard natural areas used for recreation and other purposes. (AP Photo/The Seattle Times, Ellen M.
