AWA’s work to produce top quality, well researched publications began in 1970.

Volunteers talked directly with community members in order to learn what people thought best for the future of the Eastern Slopes. AWA found the means to hire a writer to consolidate people’s collected ideas into two books to present at the formal Eastern Slopes hearings in 1973. The hearings were well attended, and their recommendations strongly favoured conservation of wildlife habitats, watersheds and aesthetic values. They led to many areas being zoned for protection in the ensuing 1977 Eastern Slopes Policy, based on the public’s views and values.

AWA’s forward-thinking approach based on vision, communication, sound science and determination, became the organization’s modus operandi.
