The Nature Conservancy

A nonprofit organization

The Nature Conservancy is working to create a world where people and nature can thrive.

When you think of Minnesota, certain things come to mind...

Our beautiful lakes and rivers, the majestic forests, and our gorgeous open prairies. 

The Nature Conservancy has a proven record of protecting and preserving land and water. For more than 60 years, we have applied a science-based approach to meet the most pressing conservation needs across the state. 

We’re working with diverse partners to protect our waters, forests and grasslands in Minnesota, build sustainable food and water systems, and tackle climate change. We're also working with Indigenous and local communities to leverage nature as a tool to build a brighter future for all Minnesotans.  

This work couldn’t be more urgent. We have a brief window of time for action to prevent some of the worst effects of climate change. Your gift today will accelerate this work. Together we can safeguard nature for the next generation.  

Your gift will help: 

  • Deploy science-backed nature-based climate solutions  
  • Protect and restore thousands of acres of prairie, rivers, lakes and wetlands  
  • Plant millions more trees, which provide cleaner water and air, habitat for wildlife, and improved public health 

We can't do this without you. Thank you!
