Now it is time to roll up our sleeves and get to work and speak loudly for this quiet place. We are sharing a Boundary Waters photo or video clip on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, with a call to action every day for 90 days. We hope you will join us by sharing, liking, and commenting on our posts, as well as sharing your own images, stories, and calls to action. Send your friends, neighbors, and family, along with all the people you meet on buses and beaches, and in board meetings and bars to http://ift.tt/2jgv14m and encourage them to make their voices heard. #wildernessyear #savetheBWCA #ourwild #onlyinMN #BoundaryWaters #Wilderness #nature #water #protect
This maze of pristine lakes and rivers are precious and we all must speak loudly for quite places like the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The proposed sulfide-ore mines along the edge of the wilderness threaten our nation’s most popular wilderness and the economy of wilderness edge communities.
Federal agencies are conducting environmental review of the Boundary Waters watershed — a review meant to identify what makes the Boundary Waters so unique, so clean, and so sensitive to pollution. The review will ultimately help determine whether the Boundary Waters is the wrong place for America’s most toxic industry: sulfide-ore copper mining.
Please submit a comment to the Forest Service today. The Boundary Waters belongs to all of us and it is up to all of us to protect it.

This is critical moment for the Wilderness. Please join Amy and me in speaking loudly for this quiet place. Add your comment during the Forest Service’s review of the Boundary Waters Watershed and help protect this special place. (Link in bio)
Please follow us, like and share our posts, post your own photos and stories about the Boundary Waters, tag #savetheBWCA, and most importantly encourage as many people as possibly to submit a comment at http://ift.tt/2jgv14m (link in bio) and help protect the #Wilderness from sulfide-ore copper mining. We are in the middle of a critical 90 day comment period which will help determine if the Boundary Waters Watershed will remain protected from sulfide-ore copper mining.
