Minnesota Made Gala hosted by the Minnesota Land Trust

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$100 – $175

Join us for an elevated evening in support of the Minnesota Land Trust! Now in its 12th year, the Minnesota Made Gala is the Minnesota Land Trust’s premier fundraising event where we gather with community members, business leaders, educators, citizen conservationists, and philanthropists to help further our work of habitat conservation and restoration in Minnesota.

The event is also an important opportunity to increase awareness about climate change, including its impacts on Minnesota’s land and waters, as well as historically and presently underserved communities. The evening includes a cocktail reception, seated dinner, on-stage presentation featuring a great lineup of speakers, a giving moment, and an exciting live auction.

About us: The Minnesota Land Trust is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that promotes natural climate solutions by restoring and permanently protecting Minnesota’s most vital natural lands, providing wildlife habitat, clean water, outdoor experiences, and scenic beauty for generations to come. Since our founding in 1991, we have protected more than 75,000 acres of private and public lands, preserved over 460 miles of shoreline, and restored 4,886 acres of critical prairie, grasslands, forest, woodlands and wetlands across Minnesota.

Events like the Minnesota Made Gala help increase the pace and reach of our work, which is more important now than ever before as we confront the twin threats of climate change and ongoing development pressure negatively impacting natural habitats and ecological services.

Early bird ticket prices available March 13 – April 17. See event website for ticket pricing details.
