Announcing a new Meetup for Friends of BWCA Trails!

What: Presentation: Preserving the trails of the BWCA

When: Tuesday, March 16,[masked]:00 PM

REI - Bloomington
750 W American Blvd
Bloomington, MN 55420

Learn about the hiking trails of the BWCA and how you can help keep them alive.

Have you ever wondered how the hiking trails in the BWCA came into existence? Would you like to know more about how the trails that you love to hike stay on the map? Are you interested in volunteer opportunities that allow you to give back to nature? Do you have questions about who the Boundary Waters Advisory Committee (BWAC) is and what they do? If you answered YES to any of these questions then I invite you to join me on Tuesday, March 16th 2010 at 7:00 PM in the Community Room at REI Bloomington.

Everyone is welcome to attend this slide show presented on behalf of the Boundary Waters Advisory committee. I will cover the history of some of the hiking trails within the BWCA, specifically the Kekekabic, Brule Lake, and Eagle Mountain trails. Other topics will include the purpose and methods of the Boundary Waters Advisory Committee as a volunteer group as well as what a typical trip with the club is like. Questions will be answered throughout the presentation. After the presentation will be a Q & A session for anyone interested in the club's spring trips, some of which can be found here:
Brule Lake Trail/Fishhook Campsite
Eagle Mountain / Brule Lake Trail East Trail Clearing
Brule Lake Trail West: Trail Clearing
