The Outdoor Writers Association of California (OWAC) “provides members two major conferences a year; a quarterly newsletter with tips, tools and editorial leads; a membership press card, directory, and Web site listing; and opportunities to network with top outdoor journalists, photographers and supporting members. If you are involved in spreading the word about the outdoors and/or travel opportunities as a writer, book author, photographer, radio and/or television broadcaster, Web editor/writer, or as a public speaker, OWAC is the organization to join to share with others your appreciation and enthusiasm for outdoor recreation.”
