MAKE AN IMPACT – SUPPORT EARTH DAY
“Why do I support Great River Greening? Because sometimes I see an outdoor space and feel hopeless. Then I see Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary in Saint Paul. This abandoned rail yard went from having a stream hidden in a pipeline and fields of brown, contaminated land to this lush, green, healthy space where I can sit and watch birds and find some peace in my life. Even when I’m gone, people will still enjoy this space.” –Tom, volunteer & donor
Make a donation today and your investment in Great River Greening makes transformation possible. Degraded parks, waterways, and forests become revitalized, beautiful, and thriving natural areas that connect people to their environment and to each other. Imagine how good it feels to be part of making that happen. Click to donate now.
In 2017 we accomplished amazing things:
- 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.
But Minnesota is a large state with thousands of threatened natural areas in need of our attention. That’s where your gift comes in.
Your investment will make EVEN MORE eco-restoration possible in 2018. 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.
It’s not every day you get the opportunity to make such a powerful impact on the Earth. Please contribute today. Thank you!
