Working with you to preserve and restore Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior

Founded in 1993 to protect and restore beautiful Sugarloaf Cove, Sugarloaf: The North Shore Stewardship Association promotes the restoration and preservation of the entire North Shore. We offer fun, educational programs for all ages at the Cove, and are teaching North Shore landowners how to become better stewards of their land through our forest restoration and invasive plant control efforts. Sugarloaf is a 501-c-3 nonprofit. We appreciate the support of our donors. Make a donation today!
