Selling or donating your land to the Minnesota Valley Trust will help to expand a wildlife refuge for future generations.
The Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge Trust, Inc. (Minnesota Valley Trust) works exclusively with landowners who wish to sell or donate their land to become part of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
The Minnesota Valley Trust was established in 2001 to mitigate the impact of the thousands of flights sent over the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge from the new north-south runway at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The mission of the Minnesota Valley Trust is to:
- Expand the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge by 4,090 acres.
- Construct an environmental education and visitor center on the Minnesota Valley Refuge.
- Complete new visitor access, education and interpretive facilities on the Minnesota Valley Refuge, including trails and parking lots.
A 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization, the Minnesota Valley Trust works in cooperation with the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge and Wetland Management District of the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
