There are many programs offered over the coming months that help remind us of the significant reasons why the St. Croix and Namekagon are wild and scenic rivers and a national park. Highlights of featured 50th Anniversary programs are listed here and are presented by the National Park Service and our partners. Check the calendar for additional details and the park's full program schedule.
50th Anniversary Signature Series & EventsThe St. Croix River Association-the official friends group of the national park--is working to offer many programs, events, and activities for the public to celebrate the 50th Anniversary. Here are a few! Find additional programs on the St. Croix River Association website calendar.
Project Red: Become a River MonitorAugust 2 10:00am-3:00pm
St. Croix River Visitor Center
401 N. Hamilton St. St. Croix Falls, WI, 54024
Wisconsin's rivers are vulnerable to invasion by a number of invasive species from Eurasian milfoil to Japanese knotweed. The key to successfully protecting your river is detecting invasives early when it is still possible to isolate or eradicate the infestation. The longer we wait to find them and fight them, the more money and time it will take. Volunteers like you are invaluable for early detection.
