Join EPLN Team Local

When local news dies truth fades, civic engagement unravels, and democracy wobbles.

With your help Eden Prairie Local News (EPLN) won’t let that happen in Eden Prairie.

You can help today.

Join Eden Prairie Local News (EPLN) Team Local and you’ll receive a special gift from Smith Coffee & Cafe.  

Your donations fund news coverage of the daily heartbeat in Eden Prairie – school board, city council, events and people that matter in everyday life – crafted by local journalists. At EPLN facts matter (as does coffee) and we’re dedicated to serving the stories (not the rumors) that shape Eden Prairie. The story of who we are and who we want to be – the Story of Us.

Show your commitment to quality local journalism and news you can use.
