Why Conservation in Minnesota Matters

As our state continues to grow, our remaining natural places are under threat. Already in Minnesota:


of Minnesota's lakes, rivers, and streams do not meet current water quality standards according to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (2022)


of wetlands have been lost leading to poor water quality, increased flooding, and decreased habitat (Minnesota DNR)


of native prairies have been lost to agriculture & development, making them one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world (Minnesota DNR)

That’s why the Minnesota Land Trust works to protect and restore the natural places we all cherish and engage the next generation in the outdoors. Learn more about how we’re having an impact together.
