Save the Boundary Waters Volunteer Teams

Our national teams are led by Save the Boundary Waters Ambassadors - volunteers based in their communities who work closely with Campaign staff to educate and organize other passionate Boundary Waters supporters across the country (and around the world!). 

Teams then work to implement the following: monthly volunteer meetings; getting Letters to the Editor in local papers; community educational events; meetings with elected officials. 

Interested in joining a Save the Boundary Waters Volunteer Team? We currently have almost 40 Teams across the country. Look for one near you below!
