Preserve the Boundary Waters Wilderness to Save Natural Wonders

Target: Marni Karnowski, Chief Environmental Officer of Minnesota’s Office of Environmental Stewardship

Goal: Conserve the ecological richness and natural beauty of the Boundary Waters Wilderness.

Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Wilderness, a sanctuary teeming with biodiversity and natural wonders, is at a crossroads. The threats are multifaceted, ranging from pollution to invasive species. This is no mere inconvenience; it’s a critical juncture that demands our full attention and immediate action.

The stakes are high. The wilderness serves as a habitat for countless species and plays a vital role in regional climate regulation. Moreover, the area is a cornerstone for outdoor recreation, which in turn supports local economies.

Sign this petition to urge Minnesota’s Office of Environmental Stewardship to take decisive steps to preserve the Boundary Waters Wilderness.


Dear Marni Karnowski,

The ecological integrity of Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Wilderness is at a tipping point. The evidence is clear: declining water quality, loss of native species, and an uptick in invasive flora and fauna.

We urge you to develop and implement a comprehensive conservation strategy for this invaluable wilderness area. This plan should include robust measures to control pollution, combat invasive species, and promote sustainable tourism.

Comprehensive conservation plans, stringent pollution control, and proactive measures against invasive species are needed to protect this natural gem.

Failure to act decisively will have far-reaching consequences, affecting not just the natural environment, but also the livelihoods dependent on this wilderness. The Boundary Waters Wilderness is not just a scenic backdrop; it’s a vital component of Minnesota’s ecological and economic landscape.

We call upon you to act swiftly and decisively. Implement strategies that will not only conserve the Boundary Waters Wilderness, but also ensure its long-term sustainability.
