Protect & Restore

The Association takes a holistic approach to watershed protection and renewal. We target and prioritize conservation efforts that result in the greatest pollution reduction, land conservation, and stewardship growth.

Learn & Explore

We lead programs so people of all backgrounds and abilities can discover and explore the St. Croix, inspire river stewardship through watershed-wide education, and engage children and non-typical park visitors to realize the health and inspiration that comes from time spent on the river.


Fundamentally, it will take everyone to protect the Riverway, including our individual and business supporters. Continued protection of this place and its world class experiences requires commitment from all of us.

With your support we can make sure this special, but fragile, Wild and Scenic National Park remains an intact, healthy river system.
