Invest in wild things

Do you enjoy seeing bald eagles, bluebirds, peregrine falcons and trumpeter swans? These species and many more benefit from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' Nongame Wildlife Program, supported almost entirely by donations. The program receives no money from the state's general fund or from license fees or sales taxes.

To help ensure that we continue to have loons, turtles and butterflies and other wildlife in our future, make a donation to the Nongame Wildlife Fund on your state income tax form, at the line marked by a loon.

Donations are tax-deductible and are matched by state conservation license plate funds.
