Are you the next Riverway Junior Ranger?"Explore, Learn, and Protect!" The Junior Ranger motto is declared often at the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway as children participate in activity-based programs about rivers and fishing. Park rangers and volunteers present free programs regularly throughout the summer at the two park visitor centers.
