Who are We?
The mission of the BWA Committee is simple: "To preserve the existing, intrinsically beautiful trails in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of the Superior National Forest."
We accomplish this mission in three ways:
H.R.845 - National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act
Plans for Pow Wow Trail Clean Up
BWA Committee volunteers presented this winter to a combined audience of more than 120 hikers at REI, 3M Outdoor Club meeting and at "Backpacking Kick-off" event at Lebanon Hills Regional Park. Midwest Mountaineering provided door prize for the two latter presentations. Result? BWAC has recruited three full crews to help the USDA Forest Service to clean up the six mile section of the BWCAW Pow Wow hiking trail that Forest Service allows to be maintained. BWAC hopes that following 2016 successful clearing of this section by the Kekekabic Trail Assoc. of the NCT and the BWAC volunteers, working under sponsorship of Fournier Outdoor Services in cooperation with USFS will lead to permission to clear remainder of the trail.
