Save the Boundary Waters

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is a 1.1 million-acre Wilderness in Minnesota and America’s most visited Wilderness, attracting over 155,000 people annually. But the area is threatened by a proposed sulfide-ore copper mining operation within its watershed, less than a mile from the Wilderness edge.

Save the Boundary Waters

The Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters is creating a national movement to protect the clean water, clean air and forest landscape of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
