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.

Rangers will be on-hand to swear in Junior Rangers, and lead activities. Picnic as one big chosen family, and learn more about other outdoor opportunities from various outdoor specialists at the end of the day before taking the shuttle back to your vehicle.
