Last summer, ultra-runner Alex Falconer completed a 110 mile run across the Boundary Waters to raise awareness of the threat posed by sulfide-ore copper mining. The run, which took him over 38 hours of nearly non-stop running, was turned into a short documentary by Minneapolis-based production company Current Resident, and was sponsored by Save The Boundary Waters, where Falconer also works as Director of Government Relations.
Well, good news to everyone who loves Minnesota’s best wild place, because that documentary has been nominated as one of five finalists for a Webby Award in Sustainability & Environment!
To show your support for the Boundary Waters and help raise awareness, you can vote for it in The Webby’s People Voice award here.
