Annual Fundraiser

"Keeping the Croix"

We invite you to join us for our annual fundraiser events!

In response to the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pivoting our Annual Fundraiser, originally scheduled for July 26, 2020, into a number of small, outdoor fundraising gatherings 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. We believe this approach will allow for some thoughtful social gathering for those ready to be together with fellow Riverway supporters. 

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

There are many ways to show your support. Please consider co-hosting or attending this year's fundraising events.

Your gift will provide valuable support for critical annual fundraising efforts to support essential programs—programs that conserve water, land, and habitat, and that educate children and youth about the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and its watershed.
