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 and email address at checkout to be included in the drawings for this year’s donor gifts.  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.
