Minnesota Land Trust is the largest private land conservation organization in Minnesota, with protection easements and restoration projects spanning the state, from beautiful Lake Superior to the resilient southeast bluff lands. Since 1991, through the generosity of dedicated supporters and partnerships with city, county, state and federal agencies, local tribes, private landowners, and other non-profit groups, we have worked to protect and restore Minnesota's most vital natural lands and provide wildlife habitat, clean water, outdoor experiences and scenic beauty for generations to come.
