"It is impossible to backpack the 31 mile Pow Wow Trail in even 3 days
when it has 1,200 treefalls blocking the trail and you can' see the rock
cairns."              --   Martin Kubik after backpacking the Pow Wow
Trail last Labor Day week

Martin Kubik, founder of the Kekekabic Trail Club and the BWA Committee
will speak about the incredible and yet ignored resource in the BWCA
Wilderness – 200 miles of hiking trails. How did ordinary citizens save
140 miles of trails in last 20 years? Why do hikers need the US Forest
Service? And more importantly, why does the US Forest Service need
volunteers? How will new "safety" requirements impact volunteers?
What does the future hold for the Pow Wow hiking trail after the Pagami
Creek Fire? Martin has recently met with the USFS officials and will
answer these and many other questions. Followed by discussion and call
to action to protect our trails.

Martin Kubik is a former US Forest Service fire fighter, BWCA guide, and
past recipient of several environmental and volunteer leadership awards.
He has canoed backpacked, and snowshoed BWCAW extensively.   He can be
reached at 651-214-5849 cell or by email at wtra-@yahoo.com
