It took an incredible partnership to create the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, the first wild and scenic national park. It will take everyone to be sure that our communities can benefit from clean water and healthy natural environments; so that everyone can come here, year after year, generation after generation, to swim, paddle, fish, camp, explore, slow down.

Contact Us About Giving
St. Croix River Association (SCRA) was founded in 1911 by civic leaders who recognized the need to steward the St. Croix River and its watershed. For the first 98 years of its history, SCRA efforts focused on river cleanups, river protection campaigns, and informational meetings led by volunteers. In 2009, SCRA hired their first staff and expanded stewardship efforts to address the growing threats to water quality and habitat.
In 2011, SCRA became the Friends Group for the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, comprised of the St. Croix and the Namekagon rivers. Over the past eight years, SCRA has worked deliberately to target and prioritize conservation efforts which result in the greatest pollution reduction, land protection, and stewardship growth. SCRA has become the “go-to” group for addressing issues that affect the St. Croix.
