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.

Join us at one of our upcoming Annual Fundraiser events!

There are many ways to show your support.

Small, outdoor fundraising gatherings will be held at members' homes up and down the river valley.

We will also be hosting a special concert event with Peter Mayer at the Horst Rechelbacher Farm on August 15.

While our daily lives have changed, the importance of protecting and promoting the river remains crucial.

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.
