Great River Greening relies on a community of generous individuals, businesses, and foundations to bring tangible, lasting improvements to Minnesota’s lands and waters.
Your contribution will help restore the health and beauty of our parks and open spaces, while connecting people to their environment and to each other.
- We help improve local parks, natural areas and waters where you live and recreate.
- These resources are degrading from erosion, human use, invasive species and fragmentation.
- We teach youth that they have a responsibility in caring for this world.
- Our ecologists help advance the science of restoration throughout the industry.
