OUTDOOR ACCESS


When you give to the Minnesota Environmental Fund, you are helping preserve Minnesota’s outstanding natural areas and helping connect people with these places. You are supporting valuable programs that create the necessary bridge for people to benefit from outdoor experiences, particularly people who lack access, knowledge and skills. Your donations are working to shape Minnesotans’ access to the outdoors by:
  • Ensuring critical land is preserved by acquiring it for preserves, parks and trails.

  • Providing the bridge to empower diverse peoples to get outdoors with confidence through organized outings and training in appropriate skills.

  • Advocating for critical legislative protections and vital public investments to preserve the health and natural beauty of Minnesota’s outdoors and educating people about the issues that affect our parks, trails and natural areas.

  • Building a community of people caring for our great outdoors through volunteer coordination that focuses on the restoration of natural places and the education of volunteers.

Your donations will support these Minnesota nonprofits whose missions align with our goals of protecting access to Minnesota’s outdoors:
