DULUTH — A nonprofit group that helps maintain the winding Powwow Trail in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is looking for more help.

The group, called the Boundary Waters Advisory Committee, has scheduled meetings for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 15, and Thursday, April 7, at Frost River, 1919 W. Superior St., Duluth, for information and training to become a trail helper.

A field season to clear access into the wilderness is set for April 30, when crews will hike the Powwow Trail, clearing brush and tree falls using hand tools and non-mechanized means.

The committee formed in 2002 to “preserve the existing historic and intrinsically beautiful trails in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness," and has chapters in the Twin Cities and in Duluth. Volunteers work with the U.S. Forest Service under Volunteer Service Agreement.
