The Minnesota Land Trust protects and restores Minnesota's most vital natural lands in order to provide wildlife habitat, clean water, outdoor experiences and scenic beauty for generations to come.
A 501(c)(3) public charity, the Minnesota Land Trust has been working with landowners and local communities since 1991 to protect and enhance Minnesota’s increasingly threatened lands and waters. Our strategies include:
- PROTECT: Directly protecting land through conservation easements, land acquisition and effective land management.
- RESTORE: Building upon our current pioneering work in the St. Louis River Estuary, we are adding more restoration and land management projects to our work.
- ENGAGE: Helping to foster a culture of conservation, to support enhanced conservation legislation and funding, and to ensure the state has highly-skilled professionals. We're currently working closely with the City of Duluth to help the city develop world class trails and recreational experiences. We expect this project to inspire more cities in reaching their outdoor livability goals.
The Land Trust has offices in Duluth and St. Paul, Minnesota.
