The Harvest Educational Learning Project (HELP) is located in the
Penokee Range in Northern Wisconsin, at the site of the proposed Gogebic
Taconite Mine. In early March, organizers of the project were getting
ready for the birch and maple syrup season. Jennifer and Larry Ackley
and Paul DeMain invited me into one of the wigwams at the winter village
and shared more about the project's mission. More information about HELP
is available on the "Citizens Concerned about the Proposed Penokee Mine"
