The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness covers over one million acres of untamed natural beauty in northern Minnesota. This vast expanse of woods and water is virtually untouched since the glaciers melted and created over a thousand crystal-clear lakes.
Renowned for its canoeing and fishing, it is the most visited wilderness area in the United States and the backbone of the region’s economy, where tourism supports 18,000 jobs and $800 million in annual sales.
Now this amazing ecosystem is at risk from sulfide mining, a particularly risky type of mining that’s never been permitted in Minnesota before.
Show your support for protecting this national treasure for our children and grandchildren.
Two Minnesotan volunteers, Dave and Amy Freeman, are paddling 2,000 miles to DC to deliver their petition to save the Boundary Waters. They've covered their canoe with signatures asking the White House to take action. Will you add your name to their canoe petition?
