    This brochure was published by the Council of Conservationists, one of the conservationist groups that united in the mid-1950s to halt the development of a proposed dam at Echo Park inside Dinosaur National Monument. In addition to advocating for preservation of the park's natural beauty, the brochure emphasizes the amount of money the dam would cost taxpayers and calls for readers to write members of Congress asking them to oppose the dam.
