Keven Proescholdt's excellent history and warnings about present challenges should alert us to the tremendous value of the BWCA. Without the BWCA our northern lake areas would all look like the malls and traffic congestion of Brainerd or Walker. Sulfide mining and global climate change pose the greatest threats to the BWCA because the effects are largely irreversible. I applaud Keven and the McCabe Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America for leading the efforts to protect the BWCA and the Kawashiwi River watershed by putting strict limits with frequent inspections on the Polymet Mining project in Babbitt.
