Minnesota Hunters, Anglers and other Outdoor Recreationists:
Join us at the capitol rotunda on February 7th at 3 p.m. to rally in support of our public lands!
Our Minnesota public lands legacy is the backbone of our opportunities to hunt, fish and pursue other outdoor recreation. These places provide clean water, spaces to roam, and contribute to healthy communities. Their sustainable use contributes to the $16.7 billion in consumer spending annually generated by our state's outdoor recreation economy, which also supports 140,000 jobs.
In 2008, during a severe economic downturn, the people of Minnesota expressed their pride in the state's natural and cultural heritage and voted to increase their own taxes to dedicate money to continue this legacy. This funding has improved access to hunting, fishing and other outdoor recreation.
Join us at the capitol to celebrate and support our public lands!
