The event is one of many in 2018 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, which became a national park with the passage of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act in 1968. Thanks to federal protections, the Riverway — which includes the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers — still offers clean water, breathtaking beauty, and abundant recreation.
