Conservation Minnesota

It Starts With You

Every website has an “About Us” section, but Conservation Minnesota’s work is really about “you.” We want to provide you with useful information, making sure your views and values are respected by state leaders, and protecting the things you love about Minnesota.

The first thing we do is ask for your opinion. Our work is guided by your priorities, and we identify practical solutions for the challenges that matter most to Minnesotans. Then we provide opportunities for you to help us get results. Working together, we can make a big difference. You can help by clicking any of the links below.

Your Priorities

Your priorities matter to us. In just a couple of minutes, you can shape our work by sharing your opinion. Our Board and staff are deciding what to work on in 2017, so tell us what is important to you by taking our survey.

Minnesota’s Favorite Places

Use Minnesota’s Favorite Places tool to find outstanding outdoor opportunities you may have overlooked and share your favorite places with us.

Minnesota’s Favorite Places is generously sponsored by Lutsen Mountain.

Action Center

There are lots of ways to help protect the Minnesota you love. Sign up for updates, contact your leaders, become a local correspondent by writing stories for our website, and more.


What could feel better than protecting the places and the people you love? Your support helps Conservation Minnesota fight for clean air and water, smarter government decisions, and a bright future for the next generation of Minnesotans. Conservation Minnesota was rated a 2011 Top Non-Profit by Philanthropedia and Guidestar for our “high-impact” approach.
