Letter from the Editor 
By Jessica Rothhaar,Communications Director
his issue,we continue our "deserts ofthe world" series with articles by two DS members who have traveled in the deserts of Namibia and Morocco,and a review ofa recent book about Africa.In the next issue,we plan to have some articles about the Atacama desert in Chile,by DS members who have lived and traveled there.Ifyou’ve traveled through foreign deserts (Gobior Takla Makan,anyone?) and would like to write about your experience for the Survivor,or share your photographs with us,pleaselet us know. This issue also highlights the increasing pressure being placed on desert water by population growth in Southern California,with twoarticles about Cadiz and the Mojave River.The authors ofthese carefully researched and well-written pieces,Li Miao and JoePendleton,will both speak at the first Desert Survivors Annual Conference on October 26.Li will lead a focus group to discoverhow we can do a better job ofinvolving members in desert issues and advocacy,and Joe will give a short presentation on the effectsofsuburban sprawl in southern California.I am in a bit ofa time warp;as I write this,we are preparing for the first Annual Conference in a few weeks.We will hold publicationofthe Survivor until after the Conference,however,in order to include a report on the Conference.We hope and expect that thisfirst Annual Conference will be a terrific success.The Board’s goals are for at least 50 members to attend,and for those in attendanceto feel educated and inspired by the program.I have to wait,but you don’t,to see whether we achieved those goals.
