BHA's North American Rendezvous is headed to the heartland!

Established in 2004, we'll be celebrating 20 years of work on behalf of our public lands, waters, and wildlife at the Minneapolis Convention Center. We've got more stories to share than lakes in MN and 20 years of our members putting boots on the ground for conservation to celebrate.

Be sure to come and have your chance to celebrate with new and old friends alike all while raising funds to support our wild public lands, waters and wildlife!
