We protect & restore Minnesota's most vital natural lands to provide wildlife habitat, clean water, outdoor experiences and scenic beauty.

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 doing... with the support of our members.

Since 1991, with the support of people like you, we're permanently protecting more than 44,000 acres of natural and scenic land throughout Minnesota.

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.

Recently, for example, member support has helped to permanently protect 1,400 feet of shoreline that is home to bald eagles and muskies on the shores of Mille Lacs Lake!

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.

And, just announced: we're working with the city of Duluth to help make the finest trail network in the country!

With your help, we can do even more. Thank you!
