Local Work

Leaders in the Field

To engage our expansive network of Minnesotans and their leaders, we have built a team of program managers who work with individuals and local communities to make progress on conservation issues. Their work varies based on the needs and goals of each community. Examples include organizing local clean-ups and issue forums, creating local sustainability commissions, approving energy conservation and climate action plans, and helping pass local land preservation and parks measures.

Our program managers also keep local officials informed about key conservation issues being debated at the state level and opportunities to make a difference in those decisions.
