Glacial waters and ancient lands in Northeastern Minnesota

The Arrowhead region is one of the crowning ecological jewels of this world. The National Forest Service is mandated to protect water resources as a number one priority. lf not here, then where? The no mining alternative is, above all, a choice for environmental diversity and sustainability. People will pay to enjoy wilderness and this area is renowned for its beauty, its waters. Entrusted to us, will we fail to shield this wilderness from exploitation, or will we protect our base by preserving this planet’s most vital resource, starting with “the mother of waters’”in the Lake Superior Basin?
