Patrons and Sponsors

The Longspur Prairie Fund is honored to be part of a community that is committed to the enhancement and preservation of the natural heritage of the Red River Valley. 


If this work touches your heart, then please consider donating on Longspur's Impact Foundation page. Every cent counts -- every acres counts. Or, if you're interested in making a larger impact and taking some ownership, you can adopt an acre.  


If you'd like to help us continue our work here in the High Plains, then click here to invest. If you're thinking about Longspur's Adopt an Acre program, then please click here. Every cent is 100% tax deductible. And since we are staffed entirely by local volunteers, every penny stays right here in the Red River Valley.
