Become a sponsor!

Each spring, University of Minnesota Extension Forestry, Aquatic Invasive Species and Minnesota Master Naturalist Programs join forces for the Gathering Partners of Natural Resources Conference. Every year our numbers grow, and we are expecting a record number of participants who represent landowners, volunteers, and citizens interested in education, nature and the environment. 

We invite you to become a sponsor of this exciting conference event. Together we can build a well-educated citizenry to support Minnesota's natural resources. Recognition of our sponsors is available at the following levels:

10,000 Lakes ($5,000) – recognition at keynote and four complimentary conference registrations;

Red Pine ($2,500) – recognition at keynote and two complimentary conference registrations;

Loon ($1,000) – recognition at dinner and one complimentary conference registration.

Conference sponsors will also be recognized on the conference website and program booklet. Please complete the online sponsorship form by February 20.

Sponsorships are accepted year-round! If we don't receive your contribution in time for this year's conference, we will happily apply it towards next year's.
