Rhetoric from Your Friendly
Dear Friends of the Allegheny Forests,
The Allegheny has gotten her first big snows of the season. Time
to break out the skis and head for the woods. It's been a very busy
fall. We've made major strides in our work to protect the amazing
Salmon Creek valley, and we remain hopeful that we will prevail
in our fight to stop the East Side Timber Sale.
Unfortunately, while our workload increased this past year, our
already-small staff got smaller, as did our budget. Our deepest
apologies for the tardiness of this newsletter. Hopefully it was
worth the wait. We promise that our next issue, an Allegheny Wild!
special edition, will be published more promptly.
I also hope that in this season of giving, you will consider adding
the Allegheny Defense Project to your gift list. A donation of any
amount would help us greatly in these difficult times. Best Wishes
for the holidays!
For a wild Allegheny,
Rachel Martin, Editor
