give a child the gift of nature

 

If you have been one of the hundreds of thousands of people that has been impacted by Long Lake,  we hope that you will pay it forward so that another generation of young people can learn to love and respect nature. Long Lake's mission of teaching wise-use conserving, and fostering a lifelong connection with the natural world is now more important than ever. Long Lake is an enterprise of Aitkin County, but does not receive taxpayer funding. That's why your donations are so important!

All gifts are tax deductible, and processed through the Long Lake Conservation Foundation,
