What You See Is What You Get Element


The quality of life we enjoy in Minnesota is not possible without clean, abundant fresh water, and we all have a role to play in caring for the water on which we depend.

Because we have a wealth of water in Minnesota, it is tempting to think it will always be there. But with increasing population and a changing climate, the demand for fresh water to meet the needs of people and nature is already overtaking supply in some places.

Keeping healthy waters healthy now is less costly and more efficient than repairing damaged waters later. The Nature Conservancy is taking action to conserve Minnesota's headwaters - our lakes, rivers and groundwater.

With your support, we will protect our clean, abundant water today and for future generations.
