The rivers are running high and fast and the water is cold. Be prepared and cautious if venturing out on the rivers!
Beginning in 2013, water will no longer be available at McDowell Bridge Landing, Riverside Landing, and the Marshland District Office on Highway 70. Please plan accordingly and bring an adequate supply of water.
Parks as Classrooms
National Park Service educational opportunities actively engage participants in learning about the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers, their watersheds, history and developing a sense of personal stewardship. Programming is limited and scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Currently one package of related lesson plans is available. It is called Rivers are Alive(pdf file) and is targeted to fourth graders. The program takes students to the river so they can learn about the diversity and interconnectedness of life within a river and the world. The curriculum may be downloaded and printed out or you can contact a staff member to learn more about the program.
