Western Watersheds grows in SW with Anderson

TUCSON -- Good news. Idaho-based Western Watersheds Project is expanding its work in the southwest.

WWP recently hired botanist Greta Anderson as director of its Arizona office in Tucson.

She recently left the Center for Biological Diversity, and will join talented eco-lawyer Erik Ryberg at WWP's Arizona office.

Ryberg also formerly worked with CBD, as did I.

Greta is a smart and effective advocate for public lands conservation. Fragile public lands in the southwest will benefit from WWP's expanded work here, and I'm thrilled.

I can almost hear the Mexican wolves along the Arizona-New Mexico boundary howling at the news of Greta moving to WWP.
