Acquire Critical Land

Minnesota’s magnificent waterfalls, native prairies, clear lakes and pristine forests should be accessible to all people. Our supporters have helped acquire 10,000+ acres for parks and trails in Minnesota. This year we began a project to add 159 acres of majestic oak savanna to Frontenac State Park in southeastern Minnesota. Plus we’re working to add about 170 acres at Sibley State Park in two different areas of the park. Our members’ support helps get these projects done and enables the next critical acquisition.

Protect Minnesota Parks and Trails

Every year, Minnesota’s legislators make decision that effect the vitality of our parks and trails now and for the future. We ensure that 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.
