Protecting our natural resources


Whether you live in an urban, suburban, or rural community, our rivers, lakes, and abundant natural resources are at the core of what it means to be Minnesotan.

The strength of our economy—not to mention our future health and well-being—relies on responsible stewardship of our waterways, forests, farmland, wetlands, and public lands. Preserving and improving them for generations to come should be a unifying effort, and I am committed to listening, learning, identifying solutions, and acting together.
