The spirit of Earth Day doesn’t start – and it won’t go away – on April 22. Our work to build a bright future for Minnesotans requires that we keep up the work, build relationships with each other, and keep standing up for our values.

Fortunately, Minnesota is home to a broad community of environmental, conservation, and social justice organizations working to make our state a healthier, greener, more equitable place to live for people and wildlife. By learning about and participating in one or more of these organizations, you can help make a direct impact on protecting our state and our planet.

This list is not meant to be exhaustive and will certainly keep growing – if you know of another organization to add to the list, contact us at
