For almost 50 years, donors to Belwin Conservancy have been preserving and restoring a significant corridor of the St. Croix watershed, providing a place for plants, animals, and people to thrive.

Your gift to Belwin helps protect the endangered rusty patched bumble bee, gives a herd of bison a home on the prairie, and shares nature with thousands of city kids each year.

With miles of trails for exploring (365 days a year!) and dozens of programs to discover, Belwin has a lot to offer YOU too! Supporters at any level are invited to an annual members-only gathering, and members giving at the $500 level and above can take advantage of a private guided ride through our bison herd on the legendary Belwin Bison Buggy.

Thank you to our supporters – you keep Belwin thriving!


Double your impact!

Belwin has two exciting opportunities to double your giving in 2019.

Belwin Machinery Fund

Machines like trucks, skidsteers and tractors help Belwin staff clear invasives, haul materials, and maintain trails, but our fleet is aging! Our old truck and skidsteer finally retired this winter, but you can help us replace them!

Help us raise $40,000 for woodland and prairie restoration.

Thanks to an anonymous donor, your gift toward Belwin’s equipment fund will be matched, doubling your impact and unlocking up to $20,000 toward our goal. Your support will help us replace a truck and cover the remaining cost of our new skidsteer so we can keep Belwin healthy and vibrant.

To see some of our fleet and learn more about machines at Belwin, visit the Machinery Petting Zoo at the Belwin Bison Festival on May 18!

2019 Challenge Grant

This year, consider increasing your annual giving to Belwin and inviting a friend to become a new member. Thanks to an anonymous donor, any new or additional gift will be matched, as long as we reach our goal of $30,000 by the end of the year. So make that extra $50 into an extra $100, and know you’re going even farther to support connections to nature.
