The St Croix and Namekagon rivers create a corridor where all manner of things --past, present, and timeless--converge. Scenery shifts as geoloical zones shift, as prairie and forests meet and mix, and as rivers and streams water the life-rich riparian zones lining their banks. Use the links below to explore the nature of the Riverway.
The park provides a "living laboratory" that helps to better understand how environmental factors have shaped park landscapes.
