Friends of the BWCAW:

Leading the effort to protect and restore the BWCAW from adverse environmental threats is the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. The Friends’ mission is to protect, preserve and restore the wilderness character of the BWCAW and the Quetico-Superior Ecosystem. The organization formed in 1976 to protect this vulnerable area and two years later shepherded legislation through Congress that brought full protection to the Boundary Waters. Today, the Minneapolis, Minnesota-based organization of 4,000 members is a sentry against further harm in the BWCAW and the Quetico-Superior Ecosystem.

The Trumpeter Swan Society (TTSS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to assuring the vitality and welfare of wild Trumpeter Swan populations.

It is now up to us all to help nurture that recovery and help ensure that Trumpeter Swans will be secure in our modern world. TTSS is a means for those who cherish these swans to work together and support their continued restoration.

Since our founding in 1968, TTSS has provided the vision, knowledge, and advocacy to move restoration efforts forward and improve management of Trumpeter Swans across North America. Our 500+ members in the U.S. and Canada include interested private citizens, waterfowl propagators, businesses, and many of the professional waterfowl biologists and managers who have guided Trumpeter Swan management in recent decades.
