Canoe, Camp & Work in the BWCA
Here’s an opportunity to volunteer and take a trip into the Boundary Waters. Sounds like a great deal to me!
The Northwoods Volunteer Connection is seeking volunteers to help with a portage repair project in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness July 13-17.
Space is still available, but is limited to six volunteers for this project.
Food and most of the equipment needed will be provided.
Participants will help restore a popular Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness portage (Lizz to Caribou Portage) by installing log and rock water bars and check dams, and by reshaping soil, planting rocks and logs. These projects will reduce erosion and create a more sustainable tread.
Volunteers will travel by canoe to Caribou Lake to camp and will commute by canoe to the work site daily. The cost to participate is $50 per adult, $25 for students.
