THE STORY:

 

RUN FOR THE RIVER

Since 1958, The Nature Conservancy has helped protect more than 650,000 acres of forests, prairies, rivers, lakes and wetlands in Minnesota. We need your help to protect Minnesota's most important lands and waters for today and for our future.

The Nature Conservancy is participating in the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon's charity program! Our goal is to raise both funds and awareness for our work to protect Minnesota's lakes, streams and rivers. 

A landmark effort to conserve more than 187,000 acres of Minnesota’s northern forests is one of the first and most significant accomplishments of the the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.

The Upper Mississippi Forest project is the largest conservation effort ever undertaken by the state of Minnesota. The project conserves wildlife habitat, timber-related jobs and public access for outdoor recreation.

Combined with adjacent public forest lands, it creates a blanket of more than 4,000 square miles of uninterrupted forest habitat. Large unbroken forests are expected to better withstand the effects of climate change.

Most of the property is also located within the watershed of the Upper Mississippi River, which provides drinking water to millions of people including residents of Minneapolis, St. Paul and St. Cloud.

The project encompasses 60,000 acres of wetlands and more than 280 miles of shoreline along lakes, rivers and streams.

Keeping this land as a working forest preserves habitat for wolves, black bear, eagles, great gray owls, osprey, ruffed grouse, woodcock and neotropical migratory songbirds and other wildlife as well as rare plants including dragon’s mouth.

The project was recommended for funding by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council and approved by the Legislature and then-Gov. Pawlenty.
