Treasured Places: You’re Invited!

Saturday, September 23, 2017
9:30 am to 1 pm
Winona, Minnesota

Online registration is now closed. Call us at 651.647.9590 to register - there is still room for the breakfast program.

Treasured Places is our annual celebration for volunteers, landowners, members and friends—everyone who cares about permanent land conservation in Minnesota!

You’ll hear Executive Director Kris Larson discuss Minnesota Land Trust programming objectives in southeastern Minnesota. You’ll meet other staff who have been working with landowners in the state. Retired Minnesota DNR fisheries expert Larry Gates, who owns the land you will be visiting, will describe restoration plans that will improve the water quality of a stream with a naturally reproducing population of native brook trout, as well as habitat for other threatened species.

What if we could preserve the places we love forever?

Would you be surprised to know that the answer is “yes, we can”?

The Minnesota Land Trust has been working with private landowners in the Winona area for over twenty years, permanently protecting lands at 30 project sites within a 30-mile radius.

You’re invited to tour a recent project so you can:

  • See what private land conservation looks like and hear about future plans in the area
  • Discover how land restoration will impact water quality, wildlife habitat and scenic views

Your hosts: Laurie Lucas, Margaret & Bruce Johnson, Larry Gates, and the Minnesota Land Trust
