From our four real seasons to our 10,000 lakes, the Great Outdoors defines life here. It is where many of our most cherished memories are created with family and friends. Passing our experiences and traditions on to our children, being good stewards of our land and lakes these are values that we all share. At Conservation Minnesota, we turn your love of Minnesotas Great Outdoors into the laws that protect it. And we provide reliable information to help you make important decisions for your family, community and future.
