Thanking the Governor in the Pioneer Press

Today, we ran an ad with supporters in the St. Paul Pioneer Press thanking Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton for his letter to Twin Metals Minnesota earlier this week. In his letter, the governor called the Boundary Waters Wilderness "a magnificently unique assemblage of forest and waterbodies, an extraordinary legacy of wilderness adventure, and the home to iconic species like moose and wolves" and stated his "srong opposition to mining in close proximity to the BWCAW." You can add your thanks to the governor here. See below how many sporting organizations and businesses support protection for the rivers and lakes of the Boundary Waters from sulfide-ore mining pollution so they and future generations can continue to enjoy remote hunting and angling in the Wilderness.
