Inaugural Quetico Foundation-US Wilderness Celebration
Fri, April 28, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM CDT
Please join us for a fundraiser in support of Quetico Foundation-US, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who aims to protect and advocate for the Quetico Wilderness.
The foundation leads two innovative programs to introduce youth to the values of the wilderness – A Quetico Wilderness Youth Program (AQWYP) and the Summer Student Research Program.
AQWYP introduces mentor pairs from Bolder Options to wilderness values through an introductory program with a capstone trip into the wilderness. Last year we completed a pilot program with fantastic results – see our video here.
The Summer Student Research Program sends one college science student from the US to work in partnership with Quetico Park biologists conducting important research for the park.
We'll be at Surly, the leading craft brewery in the Twin Cities for a fun night of food, beer and camaraderie focused on wilderness protection.
This event is will help raise money for our programs as all expenses are fully paid for by the organization. The event will include a silent and live auction with incredible gear.
