Your support helps acquire critical land

Magnificent waterfalls, native prairies, clear lakes and pristine forests are the natural treasures we’ve inherited in Minnesota and that we work to preserve and keep accessible for the public’s benefit. To that end, our supporters have enabled us to acquire nearly 10,000 acres to become part of the world-class system of parks and trails in Minnesota.

Today, your support continues this work as we are currently partnering to add land to four state parks and one state trail. Visit our land projects page for details.

Your support gives voice to parks and trails at the Capital

Every year, Minnesota’s legislators make decisions that effect the vitality of our parks and trails now and for the future. We ensure those decision makers understand the many issues facing our outdoor recreation legacy.

We are the voice for these special places and we need your support to make that voice even stronger.

Foster a Community of Caretakers

We work with and support the efforts of volunteer Friends Groups to care for parks and trails across Minnesota. They are the people on the ground helping to organize clean ups, fundraise for new amenities, and provide citizen input into the management of Minnesota’s parks and trails.
