Become a public land steward - volunteer in the Superior National Forest!

Muddy trails are unpleasant to travel on and can also have a negative impact on surrounding natural resources. Volunteers will improve recreation in the Superior National Forest and protect the environment by building a boardwalk that will be used by Boundary Waters visitors for years to come!

The day starts with a paddle across Poplar Lake to the Lizz Lake portage. Volunteers will spend the day working alongside a Forest Service Wilderness Ranger building a boardwalk on a portion of the trail. This project includes a 30 minute canoe ride across the lake and a short, 5-minute hike to the project area.

Meeting Location and Time: Rockwood Lodge and Outfitters @ 8:00 am

Fees: There is a $30 REFUNDABLE registration deposit for all participants. This fee will be returned after project completion OR if cancellation occurs before June 10th.

RSVP: Space is limited! Fill out an interest form here:

More Details: The Northwoods Volunteer Connection will provide all of the tools and equipment needed for this project. Volunteers should wear waterproof, closed-toed shoes (rubber boots are preferred), long pants and bring a long-sleeve shirt. Volunteers should also bring plenty of water and their own lunch.
