Northern Minnesota's breathtaking Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is home to endangered species like Canada lynx and welcomes more than 150,000 visitors every year. A sulfur-ore copper mine would put its pristine waters and crucial wildlife habitat at great risk — and sacrifice the region's future economy to short-term private profit.
The Bureau of Land Management has proposed to ban mining within the watershed for the next 20 years. Now the agency needs to hear from you.
This is a critical first step toward permanently protecting the Boundary Waters from one of the most toxic industries in America.
Tell the Biden administration to move forward with the 20-year ban on mining in the Rainy River Watershed to protect the Boundary Waters.
