Blackwater Campaign Update

By Judy Rodd

Laura and Carrie kept the Blackwater office humming this August with music, stories and the sound of typing. Now Laura is back at Wesleyan and Carrie is running track. Any volunteers out there??

September has been a time for lobbying in Washington on Blackwater and CARA (Conservation and Reinvestment Act) which could provide funding to buy back the Blackwater Canyon and put it in public ownership. Please call your Senators if CARA hasnít passed by the time you get this Voice issue.
