People like Sigurd Olson have worked tirelessly to protect this place for generations. It’s up to us to ensure the continued protection of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. What kind of legacy do we want to leave future generations?
A played-out industrial mining zone along the edge of the Wilderness that would gut a large swath of the Superior National Forest and risk polluting our nations’s most popular wilderness area may be in the best interest of international mining companies, but it is not in the best interest of our local economy or the nation.
Our jobs and our way of life at are risk and we will fight tirelessly like those before us to protect the Wilderness that sustains us. Amy and I are lucky enough to live on the edge of the Wilderness, but the Superior National Forest and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness belong to all of us, a cherished legacy entrusted to all citizens, a truly unique national treasure like the Grand Canyon and Yosemite. The Boundary Waters needs all our help, that’s why Amy and I are dedicating an uninterrupted year of our lives to documenting and protecting it.
