WTIP’s Dick Swanson welcomed the executive director of the Ernest Oberholtzer Foundation, Beth Waterhouse, to The Roadhouse recently. She told the story of how Ober came to know and love the border wilderness area of Minnesota/Ontario, and how he fought to protect it. His island in Rainy Lake, Mallard Island, is now a study and retreat center. You can learn more about Oberholtzer, the foundation and the island’s retreat center and programs at www.eober.org.
