The Sax-Zim Bog is a precious natural and economic resource. It supports as many as 240 avian species, is an internationally popular destination for birders and other recreators, and it supports a variety of industries including mining and logging. A massive tailings disposal area known as the Eveleth Taconite Tailings Basin lies within 10 miles of the bog already and is seeking to expand by 1,300 acres under a 30-year-old federal permit. Such extensive destruction of wetlands inside this special area should be reviewed rigorously under current guidelines.
