About Us

Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters is a 501(c)3 non-profit, and a coalition of hunters, anglers, businesses and organizations dedicated to defending the Boundary Waters and our public lands in Minnesota from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining. We are a group concerned with protecting the habitat where we hunt, fish, camp and recreate for everyone now and in the future to come. Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters aims to protect the clean water, clean air and forest landscape of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and its headwaters from toxic pollution caused by mining copper, nickel and other metals from sulfide-bearing ore. It's up to us to defend our public lands, waters and sporting heritage.
