FAW donates books

March 22, 2012
The Times Observer

The Warren-based non-profit organization Friends of Allegheny Wilderness (FAW) recently donated two books to the collection of the Warren County Historical Society. The first is a copy of the organization's "Citizens' Wilderness Proposal for Pennsylvania's Allegheny National Forest," which during the most recent ANF Forest Plan revision received the enthusiastic support of more than 80 percent of the public commentors. The second is a professionally-bound 180-page volume containing all of FAW's newsletters from August 2001 through December 2011, as well as several dozen newspaper articles related to the organization's wilderness protection campaign from that same time period. Pictured are Dr. Ronald Simonsen, right, member of the board of directors for FAW, and Michelle Gray, left, managing director for the Warren County Historical Society. "Friends of Allegheny Wilderness is proud to contribute to the Warren County Historical Society's permanent collection, so that county residents and others will always have the opportunity to learn about our important campaign to protect wilderness in Pennsylvania's only national forest," noted Dr. Simonsen.
