We are sailing on Lake Superior and just found out our new book, A Year in the Wilderness, was featured by the Wall Street Journal. #wildernessyear #boundarywaters #savethebwca #book #sailing
PLEASE CALL TODAY! We just found out that Representative Tom Emmer officially introduced a horrible bill that singles out Minnesota as being unworthy of the fundamental environmental protections afforded to the rest of the country and directly puts the Boundary Waters at risk from sulfide-ore copper mining along lakes and rivers that flow into the Wilderness. The bill is also co-sponsored by Minnesota Congressmen Collin Peterson and Jason Lewis. 
The Boundary Waters needs your help right away. Please call your Representative right away and tell them you are opposed to this bill and want to see the Boundary Waters protected, not put at risk from sulfide-ore copper mining.

Call using the Congressional switchboard: 202-224-3121. Choose the House of Representatives, enter your zip code and you will be connected to your Representative's office. 
Sample script (and speak from the heart)
"I'm a constituent and I'm calling to tell [Rep. X] to protect the Boundary Waters from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining on the Wilderness edge. The Boundary Waters is the most visited Wilderness area in America and has come under direct threat today from an outrageous bill introduced by Representative Tom Emmer. I'm asking [Rep. X] to oppose this bill (H.R. 3905) and support the current study federal agencies are already conducting to determine whether the Boundary Waters watershed is the wrong place for sulfide-ore copper mining. #savetheBWCA #boundarywaters #wildernessyear

Headed to Texas today, so bringing the Freeman's book along for the flight. As with so many others, I had the pleasure to follow their journey from planning to completion and now look forward to reading more. This book is stunning. Hardcover with lots of big, glossy photos. Like a blog brought to print, but so much more. .

It's also full of nearly 150 photos, and tells the bigger story of why we must protect wild places. We hope this book will help readers fall in love with the Boundary Waters all over again or introduce new readers to its beauty and importance. Most importantly, we hope A Year in the Wilderness will help us all speak loudly for this quiet place.

At this time last year we were walking across the lakes as they melted. This spring many of the lakes in the Ely area are already ice free. #savethebwca #wildernessyear

"Save the Boundary Waters!" Shouted one of our campers from the top of Yosemite Falls.  While looking into the valley below, he went on to say, "We need to protect the Boundary Waters like this." Being in Yosemite, surrounded by its tall granite monoliths, has truly made us appreciate these national treasures and the people along the way that have fought to protect them.  While we are out here we can't help  but think about the Boundary Waters and it's need for protection. 
The Boundary Waters is near and dear to the wildcat explorers and we believe that by speaking loudly on its behalf, we can contribute to the permanent protection if this quiet place.

Thankful for such a beautiful, sunny day free to spend weaving my black ash pack basket outside in the company of some great friends. #weave #blackash #packbasket #handmade #handcrafted #basketweave #primitive #spring #wildernessyear #wild #getoutstayout
Behold one of my proudest accomplishments: my #handmade #blackash #packbasket!!! The gifts of my #wildernessyear and #primitivepursuits community will hold many, many memories :) #earthskills #outdoored #basketjoy
We dogsledded across Snowbank Lake in a white out to meet Kevin from @seekoutside . @landtawney from @backcountryhunters also joined on Snowbank during some crazy spring weather during our #wildernessyear to @savethebwca . I just landed in Missoula and I am looking forward to seeing Land and Kevin, and meeting lots of new friends at the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers annual rendezvous.

#surivialweek training with #wildernessyear included an edible plant walk. This #queenanneslace has a DEADLY look-a-like, so one must always triple-check for hairy stems and carrot smells. When in doubt, #donteatit!!
The Sigurd Olson Lecture Series kicks off this week! @freemanexplore will share their presentation, "A Year in the Wilderness: Protecting the Planet One Adventure at a Time" at this annual series. Catch their presentation at one of the seven different locations across #minnesota and #wisconsin starting April 6. Sig was a teacher, naturalist and actively involved in #wilderness protection, (as you may recall, Dave and Amy's canoe during #paddletodc was called "Sig").

Last #spring during #wildernessyear @freemanexplore got creative while traveling during ice melt. They invented "Boundary Waters bobsledding," featured in this video clip. As we celebrate the first day of spring, it's fun to think about all the adventures ahead this season. What's your favorite #BWCA spring memory? #boundarywaters #wilderness #bwcaw #savethebwca

This morning I want to share this stunning post from @savethebwca. Now is the time for us to take a stance in the protection of our precious Minnesota waters and wilderness. It is crucial to continue to learn and keep updated on the new hearings and actions made. 
Original caption for more information-"We still need your help! Strides were made this month to protect the #BoundaryWaters, but we still have work to do. Help by taking action today. Federal agencies @u.s.forestservice initiated an environmental review of the watershed surrounding the Boundary Waters Wilderness and #Voyageurs National Park to determine whether this watershed is the wrong place for sulfide-ore copper mining. We only have one chance to save this prime hunting, fishing and recreation destination. Numerous scientific studies show the dramatic risk sulfide-ore copper mining would pose to the water-intensive, ecologically sensitive wilderness of the #bwca #bwcaw.

Today we are thinking about all the women that joined us during our #wildernessyear to @savethebwca . We were lucky to spend a few days exploring the #boundarywaters with these remarkable #girlscouts who gave us hope that a new generation of #wildernesswarriors will fight for our public lands. #internationalwomensday #womensday #savethebwca #canoe

Four glorious days in the Wilderness did wonders to rejuvenate our spirits. It has been almost 6 months since our #wildernessyear to @savetheBWCA came to an end and we have only slept out under the stars a handful of times since paddling out of the Boundary Waters on September 23rd. Returning to the Wilderness for a few days felt like returning home. We had a blast introducing 6 new friends to the joys of the winter woods and look forward to sharing a few stories and images from our trip with you over the next few days. 
Please join us in speaking loudly for this quite place by submitting a comment to the US Forest Service during the critical 90 comment period which underway. We only have one chance to save this national treasure and now is the time to take action.(Link in bio)

Can you name these lakes? Today I had the pleasure of flying in a friend's small plane. He even let me take the controls and fly the tiny plane for a while. We were in the air for about an hour and climbed to 4,100 feet so that we could fly over the Wilderness. It was fun to look down at dozens of lakes that we visited during our #wildernessyear to @savetheBWCA from high above. Seeing the Wilderness from the air really gives you an appreciation for how vast it is, and how much pristine water it contains. 
This is a critical moment for the Wilderness. Please join Amy and me in speaking loudly for this quiet place. Add your comment during the Forest Service's review of the Boundary Waters Watershed and help protect this special place. (Link in bio)
