Minnesota Made: Preserving the Very Best of Minnesota's Treasured Places
Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 6:00 PM
Minnesota Made is a fast-paced, lively event featuring the very best in food and drink from family farms, our own legendary waters and Minnesota-based producers. Kim Bartmann, acclaimed restauranteur and owner of Café Barbette, Red Stag Supper Club, Pat’s Tap, Bread and Pickle and Bryant Lake Bowl will transform these local foods into imaginative and unique eats for your enjoyment.
Minnesota Made reflects the Land Trust’s values and goals of protecting Minnesota’s outdoor legacy of clean water, sustainable wildlife habitats and incredible scenic views in Minnesota’s most iconic landscapes.
Minnesota Made raises funds to permanently protect natural and scenic land right here in Minnesota.
Last year’s event helped protect nearly 1,000 acres along the North Shore of Lake Superior, as well as hundreds of other acres in strategic locations throughout the state.
You'll have unique opportunities to bid on field trip adventures, exclusive outings and special treats...everything with an eye on "Minnesota Made," celebrating the very best of Minnesota's Treasured Places!
