"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 often 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 we need the US Forest
Service? And more importantly, why does the US Forest Service need
volunteers?  What is red tape and how
does it impact volunteers?  What does the
future hold for the Pow Wow hiking trail after the Pagami Creek Fire?  Martin will answer these and many other
questions along with how the BWA Committee non-profit is saving trails so that
Minnesotans’ lives can continue to be enriched by wilderness experiences that
trails make possible for all of us.
 
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
