Corporate Conservation Circle

Businesses and corporations can be some of our strongest allies in preserving thriving, nature-rich communities in Minnesota’s pristine lakes region. Our corporate partnership program offers creative ways for companies to declare their commitment to conservation and to the communities they serve.

When you do, you become part of a well-respected land trust with a bold new conservation vision — a vision that works to preserve land to protect water, ensuring a legacy of clean lakes and abundant natural resources for future generations.
