The AWC newsletter has a new name and it's no mistake. Our creative wiles
got away from us when coming up with a title for our new electronic newsletter
last fall. Unbeknownst to the editor, the previous name had already been chosen
by another wilderness advocacy group in the Southwest. We apologize for any
confusion it may have caused our readers and advocates, and we hope you will
enjoy our belated Spring edition.
As always, your feedback is appreciated. Please send editorial comments,
story ideas, and other suggestions to AWC Communications Coordinator Kate
Mackay at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 602-254-0361. We look forward
to your comments. Enjoy the new issue and thank you for your interest!
