Help the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust create the  Byrne Big Creek Nature Preserve

This 100-acre property was bequeathed to the MMLT by the late Joel Byrne who was a great supporter of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists and the Macnarama Field Naturalists as well as the MMLT. In this act, Joel fulfilled his dream of protecting forever this special wild place that he knew would continue to touch the deepest needs of future generations.

We estimate that we will require $48,500 to pay for acquisition expenses such as appraisals, legal fees and insurance as well as longer term funding for legal defence should we need to deal with future incursions in the courts as well as an endowment to pay for stewardship in perpetuity. MORE
