There goes the neighborhood!

One hundred and fifty years ago, west central Minnesota was what you might think of as bird heaven.

Wetlands, shallow prairie lakes and ponds dotted the Bald eaglelandscape along with hardwood forests, oak savanna and tallgrass prairie.

This rich mosaic supported millions of nesting and migratory birds, providing a gigantic picnic grounds for wildlife of all kinds.

Today much of this land is farmed, and only about 15% of it is forested.  That's the bad news.

The good news is that pockets of "prairie pothole" lakes remain. While fragmented, important areas of forest and prairie still exist as well.

This is the space where the Minnesota Land Trust steps in, along with three caring and willing families who wish to protect and restore the wetlands, forests and prairies on their land forever.
