Another Estuary Threatened

Another Estuary Threatened

Plans are still underway to build a golf course and hotel lodge on Lake Superior’s Spirit Mountain that contains diverse wetlands, one of the last thriving trout creeks in the area, and the largest plot of old growth forest of its kind in Minnesota. Opponents of the development fear it will serve as a sort of gateway for further development along the Saint Louis River corridor (Lake Superior’s largest tributary). Although a wide variety of environmental authorities, including the Minnesota DNR have opposed this project, permitting applications are scheduled to begin within weeks.
