Gunflint Green-Up Specials

Join other friends of the Gunflint at the Gunflint Trail Tree Planting weekends. At Poplar Creek Guesthouse and cabins two weekends have been dedicated to helping reforest the area from the affects of the 2007 Ham Lake Fire and the ongoing reforestation of the Poplar Creek/Little Ollie Lake area damaged by the 1999 BWCA Blowdown and subsequent salvage logging operations.
