Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Volunteer Opportunities, Posted: 3/121/4

Flyer-pdf: BWCAW Volunteer Flyer 2014_3-12-14

The Superior National Forest is once again recruiting volunteers to work with the U.S. Forest Service in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) in northeastern Minnesota.  We have always had extremely good luck with our volunteers that come from Northland.  I hope that we can continue to engage Northland students in Wilderness management by volunteering.

We also have opportunities for faculty to help us conduct social monitoring within the Wilderness during the summer.   We can provide you with an BWCAW administrative permit, waive user fees and make available any equipment you may require.  Please let me know if you or any of your colleagues may be interested in helping out.  I can provide a list of specific dates and locations where the monitoring will occur in the upcoming field season.
