Watching the light return I thought about the water flowing past me, traveling northeast towards the sun, into the heart of the Wilderness.
The scary thing is, much of this water flowing past me now recently flowed through the proposed site for the Twin Metals Mine. The Twin Metals Mine is being proposed along the southern edge of the Wilderness, next to and under Birch Lake.
Multiple studies, including one published recently in the Journal of Hydrology, show a high probability that pollution from the proposed mine would flow into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
We have spent the last 312 days in the Wilderness working to protect this national treasure. The Boundary Waters belongs to all Americans, those living now and generations from now. It is up to us to speak loudly for this quite place. Visit http://ift.tt/1x2erSX, sign the petition and take action today!
