In February 2022, Emily Ford and her sled dog Diggins set out to ski across the Boundary Waters.

Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness is proud to sponsor her on this expedition and proud to work with Emily to make the wilderness accessible to everyone, regardless of race, gender, economic background or ability.

Your donation will support our No Boundaries to the Boundary Waters program, which gives kids from diverse backgrounds an opportunity to go on week long trips to the Boundary Waters.
