Expanded Conservation Alliance Board Gets Wild

The Conservation Alliance board of directors — normally a serious, staid bunch — is channeling some inner wildness as the organization strives to help protect ever more wild places. The Alliance board met in Salt Lake City last week, and welcomed new directors Linda Tom (KEEN), Topher Gaylord (Mountain Hardwear), and Ted Manning (Eastern Mountain Sports). Mysteriously, as the meeting proceeded the board started sprouting unusual facial hair and other markings. By the end of the meeting, the group was howling, snorting, and gnashing teeth in a collective frenzy of desire to save North America's last wild places. Expect great things from this pack!
