Support Wilderness Education
Sigurd Olson created Listening Point, a rugged northern Minnesota property on Burntside Lake near Ely, Minnesota, in 1956 as a private retreat. It became widely known and celebrated after Alfred Knopf published Sig’s book, Listening Point, in 1958.
The Listening Point Foundation, Inc., owns and cares for the property at Listening Point and conducts visits for the interested public.
The Foundation is dedicated to furthering Sig’s legacy of wilderness education by publishing wilderness education materials and sponsoring wilderness educational programs.
