Join us July 18 for the U.S. Forest Service’s Listening Session at the Saint Paul RiverCentre (Exhibit Hall A) from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (doors at 4:30 p.m.). This is a critical time to speak up for the Boundary Waters! The U.S. Forest Service will use this public input in the environmental review process to determine whether the Boundary Waters watershed is the wrong place for sulfide-ore copper mining.
We need to YOU to speak up for this quiet place.
The Listening Session gives the U.S. Forest Service the opportunity to listen to public concern on the record. Those who want to speak will be chosen through a lottery system, allotting three minutes per person. We hope to hear from a large number of Boundary Waters supporters and clean water advocates!
We will continue updating this page with tips for getting to the event, info on submitting your name to speak and how you can continue showing your support for the BWCA.
