Donating is easy! 

What do we do?

The Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Program works to help thousands of species of Minnesota wildlife like bees, butterflies, songbirds, eagles, loons, frogs, turtles, and bats thrive through habitat restorations, surveys & monitoring, technical guidance, and outreach and education - including the Eagle and Falcon cams!

How are we funded?

The Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Program is funded almost entirely through grants and donations. We do not receive money from hunting & fishing license sales or state taxes (general fund).

We need your help!

Donations are tax deductible and matched dollar for dollar by the Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) license plate fund. So a $10 donation provides $20 for nongame work. Double your impact, donate today!

We value your support

With your permission, we would like to thank you by listing and highlighting your contributions on our Donor Appreciation webpage (in development), and periodically on the DNR Twitter account (@mndnr) and via our Nongame Wildlife Program Facebook.
