Save the Boundary Waters

The Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters is a national movement that is working to protect the clean water, clean air and forest landscape of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Act now to protect America’s most visited Wilderness.

Save the Boundary Waters

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness—America’s most visited wilderness area—is threatened by proposed sulfide-ore copper mining. The current administration is trying to fast-track these mining operations within its watershed, less than a mile from the Wilderness edge. Pollution from a sulfide-ore copper mine would cause irreparable damage to the 1.1 million acres of uninterrupted lakes, rivers and forests that are home to iconic wildlife and a beloved destination for paddlers, anglers, campers and hikers from across the country.
