is a multi-use waterway enabling the public to experience the St. Louis River Estuary amidst the urban landscape of the Twin Ports. The SLRE National Water Trail map includes 11 routes for paddlers of all skill levels and abilities and is intended for various watercraft use.

Ike's Concerns Re: Excessive Timber Harvest on Wildlife Management Areas
The Izaak Walton League is very concerned that the management of our Minnesota State Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) is now driven more by financial considerations than sound biological/ecological science that protects the broad spectrum of wildlife distributed across Minnesota.
Check out our discussion Here.
The W.J. McCabe Chapter of the Izaak Walton League is a grassroots environmental organization that has worked for decades to protect the natural resources of Duluth and greater Minnesota.
The Izaak Walton League was founded in 1922 to conserve outdoor America for future generations, and remains one of the nation's oldest and most respected conservation organizations.
The League's 54 founders, who were avid anglers, named the organization after Izaak Walton, the 17th century author of The Compleat Angler, a classic book about the art and spirit of fishing. We are one of the earliest conservation organizations to set an aggressive course to defend wild America by changing public policy. Almost every major, successful conservation program that America has in place today can be traced directly to a League activity or initiative.
You can join us in protecting America's outdoors by becoming a member. You will help to support the important conservation and advocacy work of the League and receive additional member benefits.
