Stories of the North: Women of the Boundary Waters
June 17
Presented by Jessy Carlson

We will share stories of the women who have lived and worked in the area now called the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, starting with the earliest stories that have been passed on to us, through the era of fishing resorts and logging, and into the present. Feel free to contribute your own stories of women who contributed, or continue to contribute, to the human history of the Arrowhead Region.

She loves the lakes and forests of The North, and spends as much time as possible paddling, skiing, hiking, and swimming in the Superior National Forest and the BWCAW. Jessy also likes gardening, baking bread and traditional Nordic sweets while listening to Radiolab; road biking; reading; and chickens. Jessy has degrees in biology, First Nations Studies, and environmental studies. She has worked at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve on water quality and invasive species management, conducted research into Inuit economic self-determination on the University of Ottawa’s CEDAC research team, and assisted with the EPA’s work in Western Duluth, focusing on urban redevelopment and environmental justice.
