Wilderness Classroom-Exploring the Boreal Forest by Dogsled

This winter Amy, Fennel, and I are living on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness near Ely, Minnesota. Can you find Ely, Minnesota and the Boundary Waters on a map?

Over 1 million acres of pristine lakes, rivers, and boreal forest are protected in this wilderness area.
