Why is the Boundary Waters so controversial?

April 27, 2019 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm

Join Friends at Midwest Mountaineering’s Spring Outdoor Adventure Expo, for a presentation on the long fight that led to the creation of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

While many know about the current fight over copper mining, many don’t realize the BWCA has been the scene for many conservation battles over the last century.

Pete Marshall from Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness will take you back to some of the earlier battles over dams, logging, flights, motors, and mining and explore how one of our nation’s most beautiful pieces of land is also the most controversial.
