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.

Thank you for your support of our Annual Fundraiser events!

From small, outdoor fundraising gatherings held at members' homes along the Riverway
to an outdoor concert with Peter Mayer at the Horst Rechelbacher Farm,
we've been gathering to celebrate the river.

Thank you for helping us work towards our vision
of a thriving watershed, forever accessible, scenic, and wild.

If you would like to support the St. Croix River Association and the many ways we work for the Riverway,
please share your support 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.
