Activists are currently opposing efforts by the Trump administration to open up an area of Superior National Forest for copper-nickel mining on the edge of the wilderness, which they say could lead to contamination of the unspoiled wilderness within the BWCA watershed.

Tom Landwehr, executive director for the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters, said: "Like the Boundary Waters, Minnesota’s rich music scene is cherished here at home and recognized far and wide. It’s awesome to see so many great Minnesota musicians uniting in support of our mission to save this pristine wilderness and shared treasure."
