The Friends’ programs focus on the value of wilderness and the need to protect it. Through collaboration with a diverse set of partners, we work to manage the spread of non-native invasive species, support efforts to preserve and restore the wilderness character of the BWCAW, and encourage and educate the next generation of wilderness sstewards.
Some of our programs include:
Superior Wilderness Volunteer Connection
A unique collaboration with the Superior National Forest and the National Forest Foundation to fund volunteers who work with wilderness rangers.
Non-native invasive species
We have worked with the Superior National Forest and other partners to develop an educational booklet about non-native invasive species which threaten the BWCAW ecosystem.
Thomas Flint Canoe Trips
Working with YMCA Camp Menogyn and the Thomas Flint Fund, we sponsor canoe trips in the BWCAW for inner-city youth.
To protect, preserve and restore the wilderness character of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the Quetico-Superior Ecosystem.
