Bois forte Culture/language immersion camp
1854 Was delighted to take part in the 7th Annual Bois Forte Culture/Language Immersion camp last week on beautiful Johnson Lake. Treaty rights and safety were the theme of a paddling program, where participants had to stop at 5 different stations and learn about fish biology and management, invasive species and stewardship, casting and sustainable harvest, water quality and wild rice monitoring and canoeing 101. A BIG thank you to all 10 staff members, 2 DNR Wardens and 2 Volunteers (photographer and paddling guide) that made the day a success... I think our staff had just as much fun as the kids did! See the 1854 FaceBook page to check out all the photos from the day!
superior National forest camping
The Grand Portage and Bois Forte Bands entered into (in 2014) a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the US Forest Service (USFS) to allow for Band members use of designated campgrounds within the 1854 Treaty Area exempt of fees.
The information in the Superior National Forest Camping General Information Booklet provides for campground availabilities, necessary logistics, and USFS regulations which must be adhered to while partaking in this opportunity.
In addition, the 1854 Treaty Authority has been delegated the authority by the respective Tribal Councils to regulate specific camping related activities. Please make sure to acquire the 1854 Treaty Authority Superior National Forest Camping Regulations.
