BWCA Weather for Ely, Grand Marais, and the Gunflint Trail

Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness, May 6, 2003

Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness


While many Minnesota residents may be familiar with the BWCAW and its thousands of lakes and streams, for others it is a remote and foreign place which they may never visit because of cost or distance. To alleviate that barrier, two families established a scholarship with the Boundary Waters Wilderness Foundation to bring Twin Cities youth to the BWCAW.

This summer, the Boundary Waters Wilderness Foundation and Wilderness Canoe Base will offer trips for 15-19-year-olds to the wilderness. The nine-day canoe and camping trips to the BWCAW are June 24-July 2, July 23-Aug. 1, and Aug. 8-16. The trip costs $410 but full and partial scholarships are available.

For most of the participants, it is their first visit to the BWCAW. The trip offers them a chance to build confidence, work in a group, learn about the area, and make friends.

Interested youth, or adults who know of an interested teenager, are encouraged to contact Sean Wherley at (612) 332-9630 or for more information.
