Welcome to Kids For The Boundary Waters!
Kids For The Boundary Waters, organized and led by 16 year old Joseph Goldstein, was created to raise a generation of young Wilderness Warriors who are educated about and involved in the fight to defend the pristine waters, forest and wildlife of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness against sulfide-ore copper mines proposed within its watershed.
“What we owe are reparations to nature—and to our children—for what we have done to our world.”
— Vice President Walter Mondale
“Wilderness can change who we are for the better, but it can’t protect itself — it relies on us to understand its importance in our lives and guard it for the future.”
— Joseph Goldstein
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.”
— Ed Abbey
“There are many lifetimes’ worth of knowledge hidden in the wilderness. Perhaps happiness doesn’t require piles of money, but living with a purpose.”
