New name. Same important vision. 

The St. Croix River Association has become the Wild Rivers Conservancy of the St. Croix and Namekagon.

Our new name flows from the changing and diverse needs of the watershed, reflecting our goals and hopes for the future.

Who We Are:

The Wild Rivers Conservancy is the official nonprofit 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.

We Got WILD for Your Rivers

Talk about a spectacular evening! Everything from the setting and weather, to the company and camaraderie, had us feeling all the feels. We laughed, cried, ate great food, and jammed to good music; we were so grateful to spend the evening with you!

165 of you in attendance and those there in spirit went WILD with your enthusiasm and support at our annual fundraiser. Thank you.

Is it too early to be looking forward to next year's event? Never!

Protect & Restore

The Conservancy 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.


Fundamentally, it will take everyone to protect the Riverway, including our individual and business supporters. 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,
Wild and Scenic River National Park remains an intact, healthy river system.
