Minnesotans take pride in our natural heritage. Our clean water, diverse and abundant wildlife, and thriving green spaces connect us to nature, offering a quality of life unlike any other. But as our population grows and evolves, so does the demand on our land and water. We now find ourselves at a critical turning point, forced to respond as environmental issues threaten our natural heritage.
The next year is a pivotal one for Minnesota’s natural areas. Weather changes, excessive pollution runoff, and invasive species threaten our delicate ecosystem, making environmental restoration THE critical issue for the future of Minnesota’s outdoors.
But YOU can make a difference.
Your gift will support important initiatives in 2019:
- Restore 1,500 acres of threatened urban and regional parks
- Engage 700 future environmental stewards and 2,000 volunteers
- Plant 2,000 trees and 50,000 pollinator-friendly wildflowers
- Conserve 50 local natural treasures, connecting people to local lands and water
We hope you’ll feel inspired by the hands-on progress you’re helping to achieve. Thank you for your consideration. Your donation is invaluable to our organization, the local community, and our state’s natural heritage.
