Save Minnesota Fundraising Reaches $1,000,000 Milestone!

PERM (Proper Economic Resource Management) is a non-profit conservation club dedicated to promoting balanced solutions to natural resource management issues. The campaign to "Save Minnesota" was initiated by Bud Grant and PERM. A goal of $1.5 million was set to protect the interests of sportsmen, property owners, small businesses, and other concerned citizens in Minnesota Indian treaty lawsuits.

As the Mille Lacs and Fond du Lac Indian treaty lawsuits have made their way through the courts, the volunteers for PERM have continued the effort to insure the strongest possible defense is put forth.

Over 100 organizations representing thousands of citizens have donated to "Save Minnesota." PERM's individual membership is now about 1,500 and growing.

If you care about your freedom, property rights, voice in government, quality of life, and pursuit of fish and game, you had better join PERM today!

Gourmet Wild Game Dinner Clears $12,000

PERM held it's Annual Gourmet Wild Game Dinner on February 27, 1999, at Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center. In addition to a fine game dinner, there were many raffles and both a silent and live auction. Several guest speakers included Randy Thompson, who argued the landowners' case before the united States Supreme Court, and former U.S. Senator Dave Durenberger. Thanks to everyone who donated game, merchandise and time to make this the best Wild Game Dinner yet!
