The Minnesota Land Trust protects natural and scenic land throughout Minnesota.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could make sure that the wild and scenic places that make Minnesota great could stay that way forever?
Simply put, that's what we're trying to do with the support of our members.
The Minnesota Land Trust has been working with public and private landowners since 1991 to make sure that our forests, our prairies, and our lakes and rivers remain free from development forever.
With the support of people like you, we're permanently protecting more than 42,000 acres of natural and scenic land including working farms and forestlands, youth camps and even nature sanctuaries.
We're protecting goat prairies and oak savannah. We're protecting habitat for migratory birds and threatened species. We're protecting places of historic significance such as Sigurd Olson's Listening Point and Ernest Oberholtzer's Rainy Lake home.
These are places that wildlife need to thrive, where people need to play.... and places that define our Minnesota heritage.
Right now, for example, your gift will help protect a very special place on the shores of Mille Lacs Lake. With your tax-deductible contribution we will be able to permanently protect 1,400 feet of shoreline that is home to bald eagles and muskies!
Other projects in the works include 163 acres near Nerstrand Woods, over 2400 feet of shoreline along a North Shore trout stream, and more than 500 acres of old-growth forest in Itasca County.
With your help, we can do even more. Thank you!
