U.S. Forest Service Public Listening Session
We hope you can attend the U.S. Forest Service listening session on July 13 (doors open at 4 p.m.) at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC) about Twin Metals' mineral leases on the edge of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. Sign up at the Tickets link here to let us know you can come and to learn about transportation options as they are confirmed.
The Forest Service has already said that it "is deeply concerned by the location of the leases within the same watershed as the BWCAW, and by the inherent risks associated with potential copper, nickel and other sulfide mining operations within that watershed."
This is a great opportunity to show the overwhelming broad support for protecting the Boundary Waters from risky sulfide-ore copper mining.
Please join us to raise your voice. Speakers at the event will be determined by a lottery system, allotting 3 minutes per person. We hope to hear from a large number of Boundary Waters supporters!
We will continue to update this page with tips for getting to the event, submitting your name to speak and showing your support for the BWCA.
