WODC Newsletter
Newsletter Index

Over forty years of WODC Newsletters are now available online in PDF format.  Printed copies of some back-issues are also available for purchase.  You are also invited to become a WODC member and receive a Newsletter subscription by mail.

To view these PDF files you will need the free Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader.  It is suggested that you print each issue double-sided in order to preserve all features of the original layout, such as two-page spreads.  As much as possible, these files are intended to be exact images of the printed Newsletter, however the PDF conversion process does cause some changes in formatting, notably at the bottom of columns.

Starting in 2000 most issues were created with a direct-to-PDF process, which eliminates scanning artifacts and ensures complete searchable text.  Earlier issues were scanned from paper copies, with searchable text created by a less reliable Optional Character Recognition process.

To view a specific Newsletter, click the appropriate link below.   Files range from just 0.1mb to 4mb, and are readily viewable with a modest internet connection.   For slow connections you may prefer to download the entire file to your computer for later viewing.  (To download the file, right-click the link and select "Save Target As".)


You can search all Newsletters by entering the desired keyword(s) in the search box.  Multiple keywords can be enclosed in quotes if you want an exact phrase match, such as "Camp Rich".  The Google search results also provide links to "view as HTML", which offers faster viewing, although images and some formatting are lost.

On average, the WODC Newsletter has been published twice each year, generally in the Spring and Fall.  Additional Newsletters were sometimes published in the Winter and Summer, and abbreviated versions were sometimes published as "Mountain Notes" or an occasional "Trails Bulletin".
