They are devoted to keeping ecological integrity at the lodge and in all aspects of visitors’ travel through Quetico Provincial Park. They truly believe that humans are not the masters of nature, but rather a small strand that is part of the large web of life. They lead by example, cultivate hope and inspire others to appreciate the connection to each other and the Earth.
Is Internet and cell phone service available?
