10 Cities Campaign: Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge

Tucked behind the Mall of America and close to the Minneapolis/Saint Paul Airport is a gateway to what seems like another world. It’s hard to believe that one can leave a large indoor retail space and minutes later be in a quiet natural area, where bald eagles fly and walking the wilderness trails make you feel like you’re hundreds of miles away from anything. Even in a state that prides itself on its public lands, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge stands out.

Reacquaint Yourself With Wildlife Refuges in 10 Cities

In 2018, we’re going to remind people to get engaged with wildlife refuges by highlighting events and activities taking place around the country, from cleaning up rivers and waterways in Los Angeles to observing butterflies in South Texas to youth leaders from underrepresented communities learning about the fragile wetland ecosystem in Florida. We hope that people will feel energized and engaged by taking part in one of these events, or leave  with a greater understanding of the benefits of conservation, and that they continue to visit their community’s wildlife refuges or participate in related local programs for years to come!
