What is a Save the Boundary Waters team?

Teams are local and regional groups throughout the country that work together under the leadership of a volunteer Save the Boundary Waters Ambassador. Focused on education, advocacy, outreach, and of course a love of the Boundary Waters, teams are made up of dedicated, and fun-loving volunteers that are passionately fighting to protect our favorite Wilderness.

Of course, this work is often done over pints of beer, or hot cups of coffee, and always ends with a discussion over favorite BWCA lakes. Take a look at our Volunteer Ambassador teams across the country on our Ambassador Directory page here!

As a member of the team, you can expect to be given opportunities for the following activities:

  • Phonebanking

  • Letters to the Editor

  • Meeting with lawmaker(s)/staffers

  • Partnering with local businesses to host educational events, lectures, and happy hours

  • Meet-ups with local Boundary Waters enthusiasts!

What is a Save the Boundary Waters Ambassador?

Are you somebody with an outgoing personality and strong leadership skills? Do you love the Boundary Waters? Are you passionate about educating and activating the people in your area to help save the BWCA? Then volunteer to be a Save the Boundary Waters Ambassador!

Ambassadors are a crucial part of the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters and they work closely with Campaign staff to develop and strengthen a team of volunteers. These teams then use efficient and strategic democratic tactics aligned with overarching Campaign goals that will educate and activate people within their areas. This helps us build the people power that we need to protect the Boundary Waters!

All Ambassadors will also be trained in the following skills:

  • How to take a stand for the Boundary Waters

  • How to interact and advocate for a healthy Boundary Waters with elected officials and land management agencies

  • Grassroots organizing techniques

  • Leadership, communication, and lobbying skills
