Working and living in the remote, yet once-thriving Copper Country mining communites has always been a unique experience. To learn more, plan on attending a ranger guided walk in either of our two units- Calumet or Quincy. Topics covered may include, family life, technology, changing landscapes religion, and more. Walks occur during the summer season.
