Lee Sessions, whom some of you may remember from a presentation he gave at the Salem Library regarding his arctic paddling adventures, sent an email regarding a looming threat to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota. Lee’s words:

“One of my friends produced a wonderful video, ‘Paddle to DC: A Quest for Clean Water’, which just went live today.

“Mining interests are encroaching on the watershed of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and we are all keen to preserve and protect this area, which is the heart and soul for paddlers in America. Anything we can do to help them would be appreciated.

“If you have a few minutes to spare, please check it out, sign the petition, and share with your friends and anyone who cares about wild places and wilderness canoeing.  Thanks!”
