PUBLIC LANDS -- National Parks in Utah are uniting to take action on the June proclamation to ban unmanned aircraft in national parks across the United States.

Drones banned in national parks, monuments in Utah
The use of unmanned aircraft in Arches and Canyonlands parks as well as Hovenweep and Natural Bridges national monuments in Utah was formally banned Monday, amid an increase in the use of drones by photographers and videographers and an increase in complaints about such use.
