On Saturday January 10th the Winter Wildlands Alliance’s backcountry film festival is coming to Hartley Nature Center!
The festival showcases and celebrates human-powered, self-propelled, backcountry pursuits across the world.
Raffle prizes from Duluth Pack, Granite Gear, Cooke Custom Sewing and more. All proceeds go to support the campership fund.
“Welcome to the 2014-2015 winter season here at Spirit Mountain! We’re so excited to have kicked off the season and we loved riding with everyone this weekend. Make sure you stay tuned for all the snowy details as we continue to pump out that white stuff for next weekend.”

“Recently named 2014 National Geographic Adventurers of the year, Minnesota wilderness guides Amy and Dave Freeman are canoeing and sailing 2,000 miles from Ely, Minnesota to Washington, D.C. on a quest to save the Boundary Waters from the threat of sulfide-ore mining. If built, these mines would leach sulfuric acid and heavy metals that would flow directly into our nation¹s most cherished and iconic wilderness area for centuries into the future.”
