Infographic: Take Action During Comment Period

When the U.S. Forest Service announced an environmental review of the Boundary Waters Wilderness watershed last Friday, the agency also kicked off a 90-day comment period, during which time citizens like you can speak up for the Boundary Waters. This comment period is about letting the Forest Service know what you think they should study during the environmental review, like the sensitivity of the BWCA's clean water to pollution, the value of this place and its economic impact on tourism and outdoor recreation. You can make a comment here! This environmental review is a great step toward protecting the watershed of the Boundary Waters, Voyageurs National Park and Canada's Quetico Provincial Park. During this time, there will be a two-year pause on mining activities in the watershed. We know most of you have already taken some action to support protecting the Boundary Waters, but the comment period is a NEW and IMPORTANT action. So please take a minute to comment. The messages collected during this time period will impact the environmental review and show the groundswell of support for protecting this Wilderness. Thank you for your support! Feel free to share this infographic to help build support and urge others to take action during the 90-day comment period! UPDATE: comment period will conclude August 11.
