From all of us at the Arizona Wilderness Coalition, we wish you, your family and your friends a happy holiday season! We also ask that as you near the end of 2003 you keep the Arizona Wilderness Coalition in mind. Support from generous friends like you has enabled the Coalition to work hard to protect Arizonaís remaining wild public lands and waters. Unfortunately, there is always more work to be done. We need your help to provide lasting protection for Arizona's existing and vulnerable wilderness areas.

We hope your homes are filled with the warmth of family and friends...and thank you for your continuing support of Arizona's wilderness.
