An environmental group is suing the U.S. Forest Service alleging it's allowed outfitters to run too many motorized boat trips in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Wilderness Watch wants the Forest Service to begin a new permitting process each season to ensure the motorized tow boats are at the legal limit.
Federal and state regulators have conceded the possibility that some potentially polluted water from the proposed PolyMet copper-nickel mine could flow toward the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. As a result, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is urging state officials and propose a solution in the final version of the environmental review of the project, which is due out later this year.
Two Minnesota adventurers who canoed 2,000 miles from Ely to Washington, D.C., last year have announced their next expedition - they plan to spend an entire year in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
The U.S. Forest Service has scheduled a series of open houses on a proposal to swap 30,000 acres of state-owned land within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area for about 39,000 acres of federal land elsewhere in the Superior National Forest.
