Birch Island Woods Fund

By giving today...

By donating money to Friends of Birch Island Woods, you are stewarding the Birch Island area's unique cluster of natural, rural, recreational, human service and historic resources. As the Twin Cities metro region loses 3 acres of open space an hour to development, you are investing in the future well being of Mother Nature and the people in the southwest suburbs. We deeply appreciates your support.

Friends of Birch Island Woods, Inc.

Birch Island Woods Fund

Contributions to the Birch Island Woods fund are dedicated to stewardship, education, conservation and habitat restoration projects occurring in or focusing on the Birch Island Woods, Birch Island Lake and Birch Island Park area.

Donations are tax deductible and will be receipted.
Friends of Birch Island Woods, Inc. is a 501(c)(03) non-profit, charitable organization.

Note: The Birch Island Woods Expansion Fund has been retired and replaced by The Birch Island Woods Fund. The BIW Expansion Fund was dedicated to helping the City of Eden Prairie to acquire a 4-acre, unprotected section of the woods so that it could become part of the conservation area. A majority of voters in the November 2005 Eden Prairie Parks Referendum voted to authorize the City to sell bonds to purchase open space. During 2006, the Eden Prairie City Council authorized the use of referendum moneys to acquire the 4-acre parcel. Contributions that had been earmarked for the BIW Expansion Fund will be re-directed by the FBIW Board of Directors to stewardship, education, conservation and habitat restoration programs centered on the woods.
