The Longspur Prairie Fund is dedicated to fostering the experiences, insights, and pleasures found in the native landscapes of North Dakota and Minnesota by way of advocacy, education, and conservation. We protect native plants, animals, habitats, and their ecologies. We respect farmers, hunters, business owners, their properties, and their communities. We teach the wisdom of the prairie through the arts and sciences. We restore native landscapes -- and defend them for all time.
We are a pro-business, pro-farmer, pro-community non-profit dedicated to the conservation and study of our local ecology. Our areas of focus and expertise are the High Plains of Minnesota and North Dakota, specifically the Red River Valley and surrounding counties. Our work revolves around three primary agendas. First, we acquire land in the Red River Valley suitable for prairie and wetland conservation. Second, we facilitate elite-level scientific and educational programming in collaboration with local colleges, universities, and schools. And, finally, we we develop voluntary habitat adoption strategies in partnership with local farms, businesses, churches, and industries that are passionate about sustaining the natural legacy of our region.
