These leases were issued long before the Clean Water Act and many other modern protections were put in place and have never been subjected to serious environmental review.
We are out here for a year to raise awareness about the serious risks Twin Metals and other mines of this type bring to the Wilderness. It is our mission to protect the Boundary Waters watershed from this extremely toxic industry.
We are working from sun up to sun down to document, share, and protect this national treasure. This is what breakfast at the office looks like for us as we busy ourselves uploading content and responding to emails while we eat breakfast and pack up camp.
We are a part of a large network of staff and volunteers working to stop sulfide-ore mining near the Wilderness through the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters. We appreciate your support and hope you will consider giving. Your gifts, big or small, make a difference.
