Are there overnight accommodations?

The buses coming from both the Twin Cities and Wisconsin will be returning the same day and will not be spending the night in Duluth. However, if you're not on the bus and are interested in camping, here are some sites we recommend: Fond du Lac Campground, River Place Campground, Spirit Mountain Camping, Buffalo Valley Campground, Indian Point Campground

Where can I park?

Parking space will be limited so if you are coming from the Twin Cities or Wisconsin we encourage you to take the bus. However, if you would like to drive we've marked where you can park on the map below.

What is Line 3?

Line 3 is a tar sands oil pipeline proposed by a Canadian energy corporation, Enbridge. It would pump tar sands, the world’s dirtiest oil, from Alberta to Superior, crossing Ojibwe treaty land, wild rice lakes, and the headwaters of the Mississippi River. It would have the climate change impact of 50 coal power plants. To learn more, visit this website and come on the 28th!
