Conservation Alliance grantee, California Wilderness Coalition, has been featured as the PEW Environment Group's Organization of the Month! The PEW Environment Group works in conjunction with the Campaign for America's Wilderness as part of the PEW Charitable Trust. Below is an excerpt from their May 2010 Newsletter, recognizing the work of CWC:

It is the classic recipe for wilderness success- and the record of the CWC across California proves the point!"
