About This Blog

Rivers are flowing, changing, currents of water. We are drawn to rivers to paddle, fish, camp, or to just sit and watch moving water. Follow this blog for updates on recreational opportunities, park programs, current events, and the changing seasons of the St Croix and Namekagon Rivers.

Three waterboatmens on a rock, they are dark brown and the leags are visible

Water boatmen have no gills but rather trap air with the hairs on their legs and the air bubble encircles their bodies, making them appear shiny. Their front legs are short, their middle legs are long and slender and their back legs are shaped like paddles fringed with hair.
