The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is threatened by sulfide-ore copper mining.
The Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters is leading the effort to ensure permanent protection for the Boundary Waters Wilderness, America's most visited Wilderness and Minnesota's crown jewel, from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining.
We've signed an agreement with DNR to review & possibly revise state mining rules. A first step in the right direction. These rules guide how sulfide-ore copper mines are sited, and we believe there should be no such mines in the BWCA watershed.

What would a Twin Metals mine on the edge of the Boundary Waters mean? Pollution. Here’s a look at different ways this toxic mine could pollute the Wilderness. Not this mine. Not this place. #SavetheBWCA
