Thank you for supporting the Firebirds in 2022!! This year for GTM day we will be sending some special items to our generous donors as a small token of appreciation to all of you! This year, every donor of $35 or more will receive a random prize drawing of a tee shirt, a coffee tumbler, or a hoodie!! Gifts over $100 will receive a MSGS laser engraved knife!

All proceeds will go DIRECTLY to support on-the-ground brushland habitat projects and outreach to support sharp-tailed grouse conservation. The firebird, and all who appreciate it and its habitats thank you!! Please include your Name, email, and mailing address at checkout to receive your donor gifts. Just make sure to include your email address at checkout. If you choose to donate anonymously, unfortunately, we would not be able to contact you to send you donor gifts.  We set a goal of $3,000 of donations this year which could act as a match for a habitat grant for $33,000 worth of on-the-ground habitat work for sharp-tailed grouse and all other species who benefit from management of this species. Any additional donations received would just further the match multiplication options!


The Minnesota Sharp-tailed Grouse Society (MSGS) was established in 1985 due to concern over declining sharp-tailed grouse numbers in Minnesota.  It is dedicated to the management and restoration of sharp-tailed grouse in Minnesota for hunters and non-hunters. 




MSGS strives to achieve its mission by raising awareness of sharp-tailed grouse, brushland habitats and the many wildlife which use and need them, building and engaging its membership, and supporting research and habitat enhancement, restoration and protection.  




Funds raised will help sponsor events and trainings that support brushland habitat conservation, support sharp-tailed grouse and habitat research, match Conservation Partnership Legacy grants for habitat enhancement and restoration, and pay for closing costs on acquisitions that protect brushlands with Outdoor Heritage grants.  Multiple benefits to the public of clean water and air, biodiversity, and additional places for outdoor recreation are provided through these activities.
