Great River Greening is Minnesota’s leader in nature-based climate solutions through land restoration. To protect Minnesota’s natural systems and habitats, we must take bold steps now to make a meaningful impact in this decade. 

YOU can make an impact today. Here’s how:  

Help us raise $19,000 on Give to the Max Day,  

and turn it into $49,000 with an extra special matching opportunity!  


Your Give to the Max Day gift will restore resilient landscapes, address biodiversity loss, and sequester and store carbon through community-based stewardship across Minnesota.


Help launch our Vision for 2030 of healthy, climate change resilient ecosystems throughout Minnesota.   

By advancing these three focus areas... 

 …and inspiring the current—and next—generation of environmental stewards, together we will build climate change resilient ecosystems that not only survive extreme weather, but also provide healthy, adaptive habitats for wildlife, pollinators, plants, and people. 


Environmental stewardship is at the core of what we do. This year, our team of ecologists and green professionals worked on 180+ restoration sites with the help of 4,500+ volunteers. For nearly 30 years, Great River Greening has partnered with the Minnesota communities and K-12 schools we serve to increase environmental connection, teach environmental restoration, and empower committed individuals to care for our shared natural systems. 


Our work and expertise are in demand. To keep the momentum going strong for Minnesota, we need your help. 


Donate today—every dollar truly makes a difference to make our Vision for 2030 a reality in Minnesota.
