Facility Manager Russ feels "at home" when he is outdoors. He has spent 20+ years sharing that passion with others in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Co-directing a wilderness camp with his wife Kathleen was the perfect place to introduce thousands to this unique ecosystem. Backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, skiing and dogsledding were just a few of the ways they encouraged other to fall in love with this little corner of the planet.
