Who We Are
The Northwood Alliance is a non-profit group that was formed in 1981 in opposition to Department of Energy proposals to locate a nuclear waste dump in either northern Wisconsin or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It was also instrumental in the successful defeat of the Crandon, Wisconsin underground zinc-copper project that had been proposed in a sulfide ore body located at the headwaters of the Wolf River, a grassroots struggle that took place over twenty-five years in the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s.
Today our primary focus is the conservation of land and the protection of water in the border lakes region and the Lake Superior watershed. We believe in land conservation for the economic, social and intrinsic values to the public. As a necessary good to society we embrace sustainable forest management, as well as appreciate wilderness and wildlife habitat, and we strive for safe public recreation.
