1854 News, Niibin 2024

SLREfromAir

1854's Niibin 2024 Newsletter is now available!

It features important reminders for those who continue their outdoor adventures. Taking care of those that take care of us means knowing and understanding beings such as ticks, invasive species (both on land and water), and fish parasites. 

2024 Hunting and Trapping seasons have been approved by the 1854 Board of Directors and are within. Most importantly, 2024 moose season applications will be available June 21st! 

Acknowledge the strength in leadership of the Anishinaabeg leaders at the time of treaty negotiations and diplomacy. Lastly, meet our seasonal staff who are bringing their skills to assist our Resource Management and Education/Outreach divisional work on the daily.

Daga, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Opportunities with Minnesota GreenCorps

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is accepting MN GreenCorps member applications for the 2024-2025 program year!

Minnesota GreenCorps, an AmeriCorps program coordinated by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, is seeking motivated, service-minded individuals to improve the environment and strengthen communities throughout the state. MN GreenCorps members serve with government entities, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions to carry out service projects in areas of stormwater and forestry, energy conservation and green transportation, community readiness and outreach, and waste reduction and recycling.

Priority was given to host sites and projects that engage with, focus on, or serve environmental justice (EJ) areas per the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's EJ story map. In the 2024-2025 program year, over 85% of host sites are based in an EJ area or have an EJ focused initiative. Priority was also given to projects targeting new communities that have not recently received Minnesota GreenCorps assistance, and those that provide opportunities for broader community involvement.

MN GreenCorps is thrilled to be partnering with the following tribal nations and Native American non-profit organization for the 2024-2025 program year:

· Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa

· Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe

· Migizi Communications

In addition to receiving training, developing job skills, and gaining professional experience, members earn a living allowance of $1,150 (pre-tax) paid every two weeks, health insurance, student loan forbearance, and an education award of $7,395. Visit the MPCA's Minnesota GreenCorps webpage to learn more and apply by June 13!

BWCAW Bear Aware — Updated Food Storage Order

Bear Aware


The Superior National Forest has issued an update to the forest order for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) regarding bear safety. All food, food containers, and scented items must be stored safely to prevent human-bear interactions.

This order intends to prevent bear interactions by mandating Bear Aware behaviors. For more information, please refer to Forest Order 09-09-24-02.

These restrictions will apply to the BWCAW as designated by the following map between March 1 and November 30, effective April 19, 2024 through April 19, 2026. Attractants such as food must be suspended a minimum of 12 feet above the surface of the ground and 6 feet horizontally from the trunk of a tree or stored in an Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee certified bear-resistant container.

Attractants are any items with a strong odor that may attract bears or other wildlife, e.g. food, food containers, scented items (soap, lip balm, toothpaste) and refuse. Restrictions will apply to all BWCAW visitors unless they have written authorization that specifically exempts them from this order, or if they are carrying out official duties as a member of a rescue or firefighting team. Attractants do not need to be safely stored if they are in use or under close watch.

VIRTUAL EVENT: 1854 Ceded Territory Climate Change Adaptation Planning

As the climate changes and seasonal patterns shift, the exercise of treaty rights and other life-ways becomes threatened. Our finned, winged, and 4-legged relatives feel those pressures too.

Building resilience to changing climate conditions is a process not an outcome. None of us are alone in this endeavor. It takes strong multi-disciplinary, multi-sector, multi-organization collaboration, partnerships, and trusting relationships to continue to ADAPT as conditions change. Join us and #BeResilient
