AS MINNESOTANS, WE TAKE PRIDE IN OUR WATERWAYS
With your contribution degraded parks, waterways, and forests become revitalized, natural areas that connect people to their environment and to each other. Click to donate now.
Minnesota is a large state with thousands of threatened natural areas in need of our attention. Your donation empowers us, in partnership with our tireless volunteers, to build habitats for pollinators, clean our waterways, and inspire next generation caretakers of the environment.
With your support, this year we will:
- Connect with over 300 farmers to decrease pollution in the Minnesota River;
- Inspire 300 young people in the Field Learning for Teens program;
- Research 1,500 oak trees, planted across Minnesota, to discover species that will be resilient in the face of Minnesota’s increasingly volatile climate; and
- Expand our reach to the Mississippi Headwaters to improve water quality, including drinking water for the Twin Cities.
If you are a current donor…THANK YOU! You empowered us to accomplished amazing feats in 2017:
- 2,200 acres of habitat brought back to life…that’s twice the size of the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes.
- 24,500 trees, wildflowers, and grasses planted…good for pollinators, rivers, and people.
- 2,800 volunteers worked together to care for Minnesota’s land and water…almost half were kids and teens.
Join us in cleaning and protecting Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, forests, and prairies. Please contribute today. Thank you!
