Please Donate Today to Protect Minnesota Waters from Toxic Mining Pollution


Lake Superior holds 10 percent of the world’s unfrozen fresh surface water. And the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, along with the Superior National Forest, contains 20 percent of all the fresh water in the entire U.S. National Forest System. But these resources are threatened.

Minnesota’s first proposed sulfide mine, the PolyMet NorthMet copper-nickel mine, poses a real and imminent danger of centuries of pollution in Minnesota’s Lake Superior watershed, destruction of tribal resources, and contamination of downstream fish with toxic mercury.

Your financial support is crucial. Your donation to WaterLegacy will be used to continue providing our winning combination: respected scientific expertise, top-notch legal advocacy, online and organizing
support for your effective voice in rulemaking, environmental review and permitting processes
