NMWorgNortheastern Minnesotans for Wilderness (NMW) was founded in 1996 by local citizens from wilderness-edge communities to protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Today, NMW is the lead organization in a national coalition known as the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters, which seeks to protect Boundary Waters, its watersheds, and Voyageurs National Park from proposed large-scale sulfide-ore copper mining projects in the Superior National Forest.

Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness will use their mini-grant award to expand outreach to sportsmen and women and to raise the prominence of their issue in support of legal, legislative, and administrative strategies to protect the Boundary Waters for proposed sulfide-ore copper mining. Funding will cover the cost of educational materials for Minnesota State Fair.
