You don't have to wait til November 15!

VNPA Works with U.S. and Canadian
Partners on Proposed Namakan River Dam
Voyageurs National Park Association has convened Canadian and U.S. partners to study and respond to a proposal to build a hydroelectric dam on the Namakan River. The dam is to be located in an environmentally sensitive site between the Boundary Waters, Voyageurs National Park and Canada's Quetico Provincial Park - an area known for its healthy population of Lake Sturgeon. Sponsors include Gemini Power and the Lac La Croix First Nation and the project is being proposed to help fulfill Ontario's green energy goals. We will keep you updated on the project.
