Duluth Izaak Walton League

So the Duluth Chapter of the Izaak Walton League has joined several other groups including Trout Unlimited to sue the US Coast Guard, Department of Agriculture and several other government agencies to stop the practice of discharging ballast water in Lake Superior. Story Also a local story in the DNT
It makes me happy to think that our local chapter of this storied conservation organization has stepped up and made a stand against a practice that has long tainted our most valuable resource.

That's great and I wish them all the luck. That's a scary issue. I see they're also taking a lead on sulfide mining issues, which is also commendable. Good bunch of folks you have up there.
