Protect Minnesota’s Valuable Land & Water Resources

You can take action on this alert by reading the information below and following the directions at the bottom.

Issue

Funding at risk for Minnesota’s environment

Background

Minnesotans overwhelmingly support conservation, restoration and enhancement of our lakes, rivers, streams, prairies and forests. That is especially clear from 2008’s overwhelming vote in favor of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.

Unfortunately, valuable funding to protect, restore and enhance Minnesota’s natural lands and waters is at risk this legislative session. The Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota’s Resources (LCCMR) and the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council (LSOHC) have made their funding recommendations to the legislature, and we need those packages to be passed as recommended!

The packages are at risk of being amended on the House floor, resulting in less funding that is critical for Minnesota’s environment.

The LCCMR and the LSOHC both provided science-based, on-the-ground, balanced funding recommendation packages that propose to restore and enhance our habitat and strategically acquire natural lands and waters to protect our valuable resources.

To view the recommendation packages to the 2010 MN Legislature, visit either:
LCCMR package: http://www.lccmr.leg.mn/all_projects/2010_projects/2010language.html
LSOHC package: http://www.lsohc.leg.mn/FY2011/index.html

Please contact your legislator and urge them to pass the "LCCMR" and "LSOHC" funding packages AS RECOMMENDED!

Support the LCCMR & LSOHC packages


Dear Representative,

Minnesotans value our high quality land and water resources and in order to ensure these great places are available for our future generations, we must ensure there is funding for conservation, restoration and enhancement of our lakes, rivers, streams, prairies and forests today.

The LCCMR and the LSOHC have both provided science-based, on-the-ground, balanced funding recommendation packages that propose to restore and enhance our habitat and strategically acquire natural lands and waters to protect our valuable resources.

Please support the LCCMR and LSOHC funding recommendations to protect our great resources for future generations.
