In the extreme northeast corner of Minnesota lies a 1.1 million acre region of forest dotted with over 1,000 lakes and cut by hundreds of miles of rivers and streams. This unspoiled landscape known as the Boundary Waters attracts over 250,000 paddlers and anglers annually which in turn supports local communities with strong, sustainable tourism-based economies. Presently, foreign mining interests are hoping to excavate sulfide-ore copper from federally leased lands upstream, and only miles away from the edge of this invaluable wilderness. Because the risks far outweigh the rewards, help us protect the Boundary Waters through #saveourstreams.
Proceeds from the sale of these shirts benefit The Boundary Waters Trust. The Boundary Waters Trust is concerned about protecting the habitat of the area where people hunt, fish and camp. Boundary Waters Trust aims to protect the clean water, clean air and forest landscape of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and its wilderness edge from toxic pollution caused by mining copper, nickel and other metals from sulfide-bearing ore.
