BWCA land swap out for comment

The Forest Service has completed a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a proposed land exchange with the State of Minnesota.
As proposed, the Forest Service would acquire approximately 31,000 acres of Minnesota School Trust lands in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW).
In exchange, the Forest Service would convey federal lands on the Superior National Forest outside the BWCAW.
The amount of federal lands conveyed would be equal in value to the acquired lands, and would be selected from a pool of federal candidate parcels of up to 39,000 acres.
