There are few purposes more important to us than to restore wonder in the world around us.

Great River Greening is an environmental conservation nonprofit working throughout Minnesota with a mission to inspire and lead local communities in restoring and conserving the land and water that enrich our lives. As Minnesota’s leader in community-based restoration, devoted solely to stewardship, we engage volunteers on a scale no other environmental organization can match. Nearly 40,000 volunteers have worked with us, side-by-side, to improve, restore and care for Minnesota’s natural heritage—17,500 acres and counting. More
