Treasured Places 2017

An annual celebration of the Minnesota lands we love!

The 2017 Treasured Places event was held in the Winona County, which is in the Southeast Blufflands Conservation Program Area.

We kicked off the morning with breakfast, presentations and awards at the Winona County History Center and heard a message from Kris Larson, Minnesota Land Trust Executive Director, about land protection, habitat restoration, and community engagement.

Later, we took a hayride to tour the property of Larry Gates. In 2016, Larry entered into an agreement with the Minnesota Land Trust to permanently protect 200 acres by placing a conservation easement on his property. A great time was had by all as we enjoyed the beauty of the Blufflands!

At this year’s event, we honored:
