St. Croix National Scenic Riverway


The St. Croix River Association (SCRA) is the official non-profit partner of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Together with the National Park Service and others, we create opportunities for people to experience and care for the Riverway. Thanks to your support, we work throughout the watershed to protect and enhance this National Park that flows through its heart.

Please join us for Picnic in Your Park, a new fundraising event on Sunday, October 11 that will celebrate your love for the Riverway while contributing to its continued protection.

Your tickets include everything you need to enjoy a gourmet picnic! Just pick up your customized, reusable SCRA picnic basket at the Horst Rechelbacher Acreage in Osceola, Wisconsin and find the perfect spot to enjoy the fall colors and your delicious, locally-sourced meal from The Watershed Cafe. Menu details coming soon!

Only 50 baskets are available…sign up today!

Protect & Restore

The Association takes a holistic approach to watershed protection and renewal. We target and prioritize conservation efforts that result in the greatest pollution reduction, land conservation, and stewardship growth.

Learn & Explore

We lead programs so people of all backgrounds and abilities can discover and explore the St. Croix, inspire river stewardship through watershed-wide education, and engage children and non-typical park visitors to realize the health and inspiration that comes from time spent on the river.

Your Support Matters.

Fundamentally, it will take everyone to protect the Riverway. Continued protection of this place and its world class experiences requires commitment from all of us.

With your support we can make sure this special, but fragile, national treasure remains an intact, healthy river system.
