Protecting Our Beautiful Boundary Waters
The Biden Administration just announced the cancellation of two mineral leases for the proposed Twin Metals copper-nickel mine in northern Minnesota. This is a huge victory for our beautiful Boundary Waters. It wouldn’t have been possible without the advocates and organizers on the ground who made this win possible.
