We are a wilderness advocacy club at CSU dedicated to making the earth a better place! Our focus is the fight to Save the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from sulfide-ore copper mining, and also to boost other Wilderness and Public Lands issues to give our members an opportunity to advocate for the lands they love! We encourage anyone and everyone to join our club, become a member or join our Facebook group for info on meeting times and events!

Our Mission

Save the Boundary Waters

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is threatened by sulfide-ore copper mining. The Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters is leading the effort to ensure permanent protection for the Boundary Waters Wilderness, America’s most visited Wilderness and Minnesota’s crown jewel, from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining.

Kids for the Boundary Waters

Kids For The Boundary Waters, organized and led by 16 year old Joseph Goldstein, was created to raise a generation of young Wilderness Warriors who are educated about and involved in the fight to defend the pristine waters, forest and wildlife of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness against sulfide-ore copper mines proposed within its watershed.
