The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Fish and Wildlife Division offers landowners property tax exemptions under the program (est. 1980).
MINN. STAT. 272.02.
In addition, the owner may receive cash payments from the state for the preservation of native prairie (through temporary or permanent easements) under MINN. STAT. § 84.96.
In 1980 the state legislature -- in recognition of the critical importance of native prairie -- created an incentive for landowners to preserve their native prairie: Prairie Tax Exemption . This exempts eligible lands from property taxes and is administered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in cooperation with local County Tax Assessors.
